The pizza place that became entangled in the RFRA debate in 2015 is apparently closed.

A sign in the front window of Memories Pizza in Walkerton says the pizza place was shuttered last month.

It became ground zero for the national debate in 2015 religious and civil rights debate after the owners, Kevin and Crystal O’Connor, wouldn’t cater a gay wedding because of their religious beliefs.

Their stance went viral and the national media spread their story far and wide. The store actually closed for eight days after protests and death threats, but a donation drive led by Glenn Beck got the store open again.

Now, it’s closed and the South Bend Tribune says business owners and residents in Walkerton feel the owners simply wanted to retire.
