The Falls closed at Auburn Plaza


AUBURN — Greg Hird says he doesn’t have plans to try another restaurant venture in Lewiston-Auburn. His restaurant, The Falls, closed on April 24 after opening one year ago at 2 Great Falls Plaza.

“The depression/recession had a lot to do with it,” Hird said Monday.

He opened the fine dining spot with his son, Gregory, last April. Both had experience working for their family’s business, the Chick-A-Dee in Turner, which Greg Hird had run for 20 years.

He said he wasn’t aware of future plans for the space. Since the longtime restaurant T.J.’s closed there in 2006, Great Falls Grill and Amanda’s Restaurant and Pub have also opened and closed there.
