Yianni's House of Pizza in Jay closes

Jan. 6—The end of the year was also the end of an era in Jay, with the closing of Yianni's House of Pizza at 206 Main St. The owner is retiring after serving the area for decades, according to Stathi Papanikolaou, whose family owns and operates Yianni's House of Pizza in South Paris. He told The Buzz that the South Paris location will be unaffected by the closure in Jay.

"We, here at the South Paris location, are continuing to operate as we have over the years," Papanikolaou wrote in an email response. He said they have not decided what to do with the building in Jay, which his family owns.
