On Wednesday, Rocky’s Burger Shack on Gladstone Road announced it would not be opening as business resumed in the new year.

“We would love to thank our many loyal customers and friends. Especially those of you that have been with us for many years.
“It has been a rewarding experience for us, and we hope everyone has a fantastic new year as we explore new possibilities.”
Many customers expressed their sadness and gratitude to their beloved burger joint as the comments flowed thick and fast.
“So sad. Been waiting for you to reopen as well. Good luck for the future,” wrote one customer.
“My birthday just wasn’t the same with no fish ‘n’ chips, lasagne and chicken and avo pizza with prawns. Good luck with the new venture,” wrote another.
