Students looking to get their Pokey Sticks fix Friday were out of luck.
A sign in the window of Gumby’s Pizza on Friday stated that the establishment was “closed by order of the State College Dept. of Ordinance Enforcement and Public Health” for the day. But by Saturday night the restaurant was back open for business, good news for those looking for a game day dinner or late night snack.
According to Gumby’s management and employees working there Saturday night, the borough required that the pizza shop close for the day in order to make repairs in the restaurant, including fixing plumbing issues in the bathroom and sealing holes in the rear wall. Employees insisted that any rumors circulating about lingering health code issues are false.
