The home of the Fribble milkshake and the Super Melt Sandwich has filed for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy. Friendly’s Restaurants will close 63 locations throughout the country, 6 of those locations are located here in the Albany area.

According to the Times Union, the locations that will close are  Wolf Road in Colonie, Western Avenue in Guilderland, Delaware Avenue in Bethlehem, Congress Street in Saratoga Springs, Altamont Avenue in Rotterdam and Upper Glen Street in Glens Falls.

The Massachusetts based company says the bad economy coupled with high costs and high rents are the reason for the bankruptcy filing. Their remaining 424 stores will remain open as the company reorganizes.

I am certainly glad not all the stores in the area are closing. I couldn’t live without my Reeses Pieces sundae. The greatest Friendly’s creation EVER!!!!
