Hudson Valley residents fear a longtime pizzeria may be closed or changed forever. The pizzeria was the first to ever open in one local town.

The current owners of Tony's Pizzeria in Kingston confirmed the pizzeria is closing on Saturday.

"After 10 years of owning and operating Tony’s, we have decided it is time for us to move on. Some months back we put the property on the market and we now have a buyer. We entered into contract and in preparation for the sale we will be closing at the end of the night this Saturday the 29th," owners wrote on Facebook.

The pizzeria is under contract, according to Corcoran Country Living.

"We always think of Tony’s as something that belongs to Kingston (to all of you)and like those before us we were just putting in our time as the caretakers," Tony's current owners wrote. "We hope the new owners realize what they are acquiring and honor the tradition of Tony’s as a place to gather, eat, drink and be merry!"

"After 6 years of being shut down we turned the Tony’s Pizzeria neon back on. People came, it was a successful night and we’ve been flipping those 1st two kegs and slinging wings ever since. Turns out opening up on Friday the 13th was a good night for us to begin what would become an amazing 10-year journey," the owners added.

The current owners thanked its loyal customers for 10 great years of service.
