Even in the best of times, the food business is challenging. For a popular Garfield pizza shop, this week has been more challenging than most.
It started with a burglary earlier this week at Spak Bros. Pizza, located at 5107 Penn Ave. That was followed by the breakdown of the shop's walk-in cooler. While trying to get the word out to customers about their temporary closing –– they have since reopened –– the owners discovered someone had created a false Twitter account that was spreading false and malicious information.
In typical Pittsburgh fashion, Spak's loyal customers are coming to the rescue with social-media posts such as these:
Looks like @SpakBrothers is blowing up tonight. The one line that is actually worth waiting in.— Dan Tallarico (@woozle) July 30, 2015
Like we said, typical Pittsburgh.
