CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - The owners of Yours Truly sold off their Shaker Square location on Monday, as the business looks to transition to a kitchen and bar concept.

“It is bittersweet because we have so enjoyed the charm of Shaker Square and the community we served,” said YTR President, Dixie Singer.

The restaurant, which was opened on Shaker Boulevard in 1993, was “ill-suited” for remodeling, according to a post on the Yours Truly Restaurant Facebook page.

“Yours Truly appreciates the loyalty and dedication of our team members. All our team members have been notified of the closure and will be transferred to other Yours Truly locations. We do not expect any layoffs and we are committed to assisting the new owners in every way possible. Look for an exciting opening announcement soon,” the Facebook post read.

“Our vision is to transform each existing Yours Truly to the K&B concept we have in our newer and remodeled restaurants. Although the YTSS facility is gorgeous, the space would not easily, if at all, physically accommodate the bar, separate party area, etc. that we have in our K&B locations,” Singer said.

There are nine other Yours Truly locations in Northeast Ohio, including in Beachwood, Chagrin Falls, Hudson, Mayfield Village, Mentor, Medina, Rockside, Playhouse Square and Solon.

The new owner will be announcing his concept soon, according to Singer.
