For those of you who've been venturing back into downtown Grand Rapids over the past couple of weeks have noticed that things look very different than they did pre-pandemic.

Much of the growth in the city has continued with the continuing construction around Studio Park, a new hotel a block from Van Andel Arena, and the continuing renovations at the historic Amway Grand Hotel. But one of the sadder realizations you'll have is realizing how many restaurants are closed, either temporarily, or permanently.  Today we add the downtown location for Electric Hero to the permanently closed list.

As announced today on their facebook page:

It is with a sad heart that we announce the closing of the Electric Hero Grand Rapids location. Our last day of operation will be Thursday May 20th 2021. We would love to see you so please come for a sandwich or salad, and to say goodbye to the staff!

If you want to get one last fix at the sandwich shop, the Grand Rapids location at 125 Ottawa Ave NW, in the Ledyard Building, will close on May 20th. If you still have gift cards you can use them before that date, or at the Electric Hero locations in Grand Haven or Holland.

So make sure you keep them in mind next time you head to the beach. An Electric Hero sub might be perfect for a day at Lake Michigan.

Electric Hero opened in the Ledyard building location in August of 2015.
