For 23 years, Gabriel Khater has come to work at his House of Pizza at 747 Richmond Road.
Seven days a week — 11 a.m. to midnight on weekdays, 11 to 2 a.m. on weekends.
“I feel like I could close my eyes and run the store,” Khater said as he slices up a fresh-from-the-oven pie in his pizzeria, the last business left open in the once thriving strip mall.
In a few years, train tracks will run through this mall near the corner of Richmond and Cleary Avenue, which has been expropriated by the city as it prepares for Phase 2 of the LRT system. The mall will be the site of the train’s Cleary Station.https://ottawasun.com/news/local-news/house-of-pizza-last-business-standing-in-richmond-road-strip-mall-expropriated-for-lrt/wcm/c9d826ce-3cd9-43c9-ba52-950b5c6da345
