DULUTH — GB Schneider & Co. restaurant in West Duluth will be permanently closing May 5, owner Gary Schneider said.

Schneider, 72, said he will be retiring from the restaurant industry. He opened GB Schneider & Co at 4602 Grand Ave. in June 2010.

"I've just loved being in West Duluth for 12 years and I'm going to miss all my customers that became friends," Schneider said. "I'm very happy to retire at this point. It's been a tough two years with COVID."

The restaurant building was purchased by Mexico Lindo, located in the Fitger's building in downtown Duluth. A Mexico Lindo representative was not available to answer questions, but Schneider said Mexico Lindo will take over the West Duluth property on May 15.
