Tactikal Tacos Of Port Jervis, NY Shares A Message On Their Social Media
On March 10, 2023, Tactikal Tacos wrote a heartfelt message to their valued customers.
"To our devoted customers:
As all of you know, our small business is family owned and operated. Family is extremely important to us and our customers have become our extended family as well. It is with sad and heavy hearts that we must announce that we will not be re-opening this spring at our current location on Jersey Avenue in Port Jervis. At our request, our property management graciously allowed early termination of our lease so we could focus on family and family estate issues. Things move slowly when dealing with life estates, especially if those estates are located outside of the U.S. and our family must fly back and forth to get any and everything done.
Time is not on our side in this situation and we will have to do much traveling this year. This will cause many days and possibly weeks of closure dates for the restaurant in the very near future, so we decided to not re-open. We hope that our food created a warm and special place in your hearts for Tactikal Tacos. We appreciate all the support we've gotten from our community and those passing through. Perhaps this won't be a final farewell from us but it is a 'Hasta La Vista' for the time being. Take care of yourselves and one another. We miss your faces already. - Tactikal Staff"
