“It is with humble gratitude and a heavy heart that we announce the closing of Jade Sushi & New Asian,” the post reads. “This has been a very difficult and emotional decision and we are so sad to say goodbye, after 10 years. For an Asian restaurant to survive and thrive in College Park for 10 years is an accomplishment of which we can all be proud.”

The business said its last day in operation will be on Saturday, Nov. 5.
