We covered the story back in 2007 when Pretenders star Chrissie Hynde opened her restaurant. Now, it has sadly closed after four years in business.

The Akron, Ohio vegan restaurant/bar/coffeehouse/bakery, VegiTerranean, has now officially closed its doors. According to the Washington Post, Hynde posted a note on the restaurant website this weekend saying that while she and staff members tried to stay open, the current state of the economy has made it impossible.

Vegan blog Your Daily Vegan, also served up this bad news along with some delicious-looking photos of food from VegiTerranean. The note from Hynde is also included. She says, “It is with great regret that The VegiTerranean in downtown Akron has closed its doors for the last time. This has been a labour of love for me for the last four years. We tried everything we could to keep the restaurant going but unfortunately due to the current economic climate this has not been possible. I’d like to thank everybody who helped me try to fulfill my dream. I discovered that vegan cuisine in Ohio has become more appreciated than I imagined.”
