Canyon Pizza Moving To New Home At Canyon Wings

Updated 2:47 p.m. Monday, September 26:

Although The Daily Collegian reported the low $1 price of a slice at Canyon Pizza may soon go up, Canyon manager Alex Moore explained this is “totally a rumor.”

“I have not heard anything about that,” he said.

Canyon Wings will move to the old Penn State Sub Shop location just a few doors down. As for the fate of the original Canyon Pizza building, Moore said it’ll be knocked down to make way for yet another high rise building downtown.

“[The Borough has] been talking about knocking down the building since I started working here 11 years ago,” Moore said, “and now they’re finally doing it.”

In the new location, Canyon’s famed picnic tables may or may not make their way to greasy pizza shop heaven.

“I’m not sure what the layout’s going to be like,” Moore said. “It should be pretty much the same, but I’m not sure about what outdoor seating options will be like.”

Original story:

Years of drunk Penn Staters enjoying a dollar slice of pizza at the corner of Beaver Ave and Locust Lane will come to a close as soon as next week as Canyon Pizza announced it will move from its current location to one at the Canyon Wings storefront.

The announcement (pictured above) was posted in the window of Canyon Pizza this morning and reads as follows:

Canyon Pizza will be moving soon! During the first week of October, we will be opening our new location at 219 East Beaver Avenue. We will be moving to where Canyon Wings is currently located, right next to “Music Mart” on the other side of East Beaver Avenue! Our location is changing but don’t worry! Our low prices and great pizza will still be the same! So keep an eye out for the new Canyon Pizza right down the street!

Canyon Wings is located two blocks west at the intersection of Beaver Ave and McAllister Alley, a bit further away from foot of fratland and the Beaver Hill White Loop stop.

The sign didn’t mention the fate of Canyon Wings or Canyon Pizza’s current location, but with the short time frame for the move we’ll find out soon enough. Attempts to reach out to both Canyon Pizza and Canyon Wings were unsuccessful as both were busy but we’ll keep you updated as more information becomes available.

One thing is for sure, however: though the pizza will remain, the Canyon experience will never be the same again.
