Ideally, when you get a gift card, you should use it as soon as possible. But, few people do. And in the time between purchase and redemption, sometimes, the worst happens. The restaurant where you have the gift certificate closes. What can you do?
Allow me to reflect a bit on some of the restaurants that I miss. Places that have closed, moved or evolved into other entities.
The telephone numbers for four of the five Pepino's Pizza locations have been disconnected, leading us to believe this local chain of Italian restaurants has closed. The Menomonee Falls location is still open.
