Indigo Marsh plans to close down next week

Reported by Scott Saxton email

SURF CITY, NC (WECT) - Indigo Marsh, a waterfront chophouse that advertises casual fine dining on Topsail Island, plans to close down next week, according to workers.

The restaurant sent out an email to customers last night stating it will close down "on or before December 12th."

Poor sales over the last couple years are the main reason, according to the email.

"As those of you who are familiar with Topsail in the winter, it is very hard for a restaurant over the winter, but the summer usually more than makes up for it.  Unfortunately, the last two summers have not been strong, so we have had to make the decision to close," Alicia Lucien said in the written statement.
