The shop is sitting untouched as of the date of this article. According to their Facebook page, there is a re-opening in the works, but they are not ready to share details.


John will be greatly missed by the employees at “Charlie’s Pizzeria” and the greater community. We at plymouthnbeyond wish Mr. Jackson’s family well and hope to possibly hear from them in the future about the plans for “Charlie’s Pizzeria”.
