The Industry, Dave Garry and Heather Gleason’s (of Good Dog Bar fame) Pennsport bar will shut its doors for good on New Year’s Eve.

It was the Good Dog’s costly, nine-week renovation that took place this summer that refocused their efforts, forcing them to close a bar that quickly became a neighborhood staple in its five-and-a-half year run in South Philly. Garry tells Foobooz that it was simply a matter of underperformance: “It wasn’t paying for itself. Good Dog used to supplement it, but after the renovation, we just couldn’t do it anymore.”
