Raise your hand if you’ve NEVER been to, or at least stumbled by The Fours.  That’s not many hands.

Shocker!  The Fours, a Canal Street mainstay before Bruins and Celtics games and concerts at the Garden (old and new,) is closed as of Monday.

According to an article in the Boston Globe, the closure of the TD Garden, empty nearby business buildings, and the expansion of bars and restaurants at the Garden forced the owners to close forever.

Owner Peter Colton, whose family has owned The Fours since 1980 says:

“Once they closed the Garden down [in March], it was just a matter of time because that was basically why we were here in the first place. The Garden’s basically our business plan.”

The Quincy and Norwell locations will remain open, as they have survived with take-out and outside dining.

No word on what will happen with the walls and walls of Boston sports memorabilia.

Old Boston continues to slowly slip away.  RIP to The Fours and here’s hoping their employees can find new gigs.
