Mankato Subway Closes Doors After Almost 30 Years

After serving up hungry customers for nearly 30 years, the first ever Subway sandwich shop in Mankato has closed its doors.

A spokesperson says that the Subway in the Village East Center was a good location and sales were steady, but the decision was made to close the doors because their lease was up – and they wanted to pursue other possible spots in town. All of the impacted staff were given positions at the other Subway locations in town, with their same positions, pay and hours.

The Village East Center Subway first opened in 1988 and despite it’s closing, it won’t be too much of a hardship for those craving a meatball sub and a macadamia nut cookie, with 7 other Subway locations across Mankato, along with the one in St. Peter.
