Marie Callender's Closes Doors in Napa

Staff laid off with no warning Sunday at Callender's locations around the Bay Area.

Marie Callender's, the longtime purveyor of pies and fries at Highway 29 and Trower Avenue in Napa, is no more: A Callender's corporate representative dismissed the staff and locked the doors on Sunday afternoon, according to Jim Engstrom, manager of neighboring .

The closing -- which took place simultaneously with the shuttering of other Callender's restaurants around the Bay Area, according to a report in claycord.com -- left waitresses and cooks jobless without warning.

It also left Engstrom without a restaurant to provide the breakfasts promised his guests.

"I'm more than a little upset," he said Monday afternoon, about 24 hours after he received word that the restaurant was closed.

"Nobody here knew any of this was coming."

Engstrom said he procured Monday's breakfast of pastries and juices himself, and was scheduled to meet with the management at to arrive at "some temporary solution" to feed the inn's guests.
