GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

A Greenville food staple is shutting its doors after 10 years in business.

Rising rents in the city and rising food prices were both to blame for the news of American Grocery restaurant's closing.

The restaurant's staff released the following statement:

American Grocery has shared its last service with guests and the restaurant has officially closed. When Joe and Darlene opened AGR 10 years ago, they wanted to bring a new look of food and beverage to Greenville, and they are very proud of what they accomplished. Due to rising rents in the city, rising food prices and the staffing challenges that restaurants are feeling nationwide, they felt like this was the right time to close and put their energy towards the next step in their careers. This means the growth of Vault & Vator as well as some exciting things that are just around the corner with Renegade Vittles. 

On behalf of Joe, Darlene, the entire AGR family and myself, we want to thank our friends and patrons for all of the support throughout the years, especially our many stalwart regulars! We are forever grateful.

 American Grocery was located at 732 S Main Street in Greenville.
