The shop, known for its Polish dumplings and other authentic Polish cuisine, has extended opening hours from April 21 until it closes on May 20.
In the same post sharing the news, rising food prices and being unable to find staff were part of the decision to close in May 2016 after launching almost exactly six years ago.
“We’ve been trying so hard for so long,” the post reads.
Owner Eva Sek also told the Houston Chronicle that when she spoke about the imminent closure, there were “usually too few customers.”
Sek and her husband Miroslaw are Polish immigrants. They moved to the United States to escape communism and lived in California and Chicago before moving to the Clear Lake area.
Her story is about chasing the American Dream, and that included being able to open a restaurant. But keeping the restaurant running was never easy as Sek’s husband continued to work as a truck driver to make ends meet.
Despite the closure, people are sharing how much they loved their pierogi and saying the restaurant will be greatly missed.
Sek told the Chronicle that she is considering stocking her pierogi at the Henderson and Kane General Store in Sixth Ward, but otherwise has no plans to resume business.
