Update on 8/18/20 — The &pizza in Ballston is now open, but will be closed again next Monday. Darien Bates, head of technology at &pizza, explained that the location had been closed Monday and would be closed again next Monday to make changes to accommodate the store’s increased takeout demand.
Earlier: The &pizza at 3924 Wilson Blvd has been closed for more than a week, with company representatives saying the closure is temporary.
“[The Ballston location] is temporarily shut down due to operational changes,” an &pizza representative told ARLnow.
The fast-casual pizzeria opened near the intersection with N. Quincy Street in late 2017. The &pizza rep said there is no additional information on when the regional pizza chain will reopen the Ballston outpost.
The pandemic has caused financial pain for many local restaurants, including those that serve lunchtime office crowds like &pizza. A number of restaurants and local businesses in Arlington have closed permanently since the epidemic started in March.
Though an &pizza rep said the Ballston location was still closed today, a couple of readers tell us they dined there over the weekend.
Our Ballston location is closed for today. As for the other shops, they had to turn off online ordering for the time being due to extremely high order volume 😓
