The Hudson Valley will soon have one less Olive Garden restaurant to choose from after officials announced closure is set for early February.

The Daily Freeman reports representatives of the Town of Ulster location decided to not renew the lease and will only serve customers for a few more weeks. The business, located in Kings Mall, first opened in March of 2010 and has around 7,500 square feet. Olive Garden has a seating capacity of around 225 and reportedly employs around 150 people.

Parent company Darden Restaurants, Inc. owns 800 restaurants including brands like LongHorn Steakhouse and The Capital Grille. They will offer current employees positions at other properties where possible and severance to those unable to transfer.

Olive Garden also has locations in Poughkeepsie and Middletown to choose from.
