Alpha Pizza Pi, 356 College St, Amherst RIP
We don't call Amherst a "college town" for nothing. Obviously our #1 industry is education and along with that all the accessory commercial activity: rental housing, food and alcohol being at the top of the short list.
And of course "food" usually means pizza or Chinese.
While proven pizza veterans Antonio's, Sibies, and Bruno's continue to thrive, and downtown newbie Arise Farm to Table Pub & Pizzeria seems to be packing them in, this location at 356 College Street has now had the second failure in four years as a pizza storefront.
But that will not stop a young entrepreneur with more passion than sense from opening up a business here in the near future. Pizza anyone?
