A third business in Donaghey Hall at UCA has announced it will be closing Wednesday.
Uncle T’s Deli Market joins Blue Sail Coffee and Mosaique Bistro as two businesses that have recently closed.
Mosaique was the first to announce closure Dec. 5 when it could no longer keep its doors open.
Blue Sail Coffee was the second to leave Jan. 19 because it was not profitable.
The location on Front Street is still open.
Not unlike Mosaique and Blue Sail, who cited low sales as the reason for closing, Uncle T’s has left a letter on its doors saying, “Although we wish to continue, business at this location can no longer sustain our operation.”
The sign goes on to say it appreciates the support and has enjoyed time in Conway.
In the letter, the deli said its final day will be Wednesday, but will keep its Little Rock location open where it has remained for more than 50 years.
