Word got out on area blogs over the weekend, and it's true. The Donna’s on Snowden River Parkway in Columbia closed Sunday after a 10-year run. “It’s been tough,” onwer Alan Hirsch said about the closing. ““It was a great experience. Our customers became our friends. We had a decent business there but just not enough for us to commit to another 10-year lease.”
Hirsch said that business continues to be excellent at the Donna’s locations in Charles Village and Cross Keys. One factor in the Columbia closing, Hirsch added, was so he and co-owner Donna Crivello could devote their energies to a return to Mount Vernon.
