Kroll's Diner on Main, 2901 Main Ave., Fargo, is closing on May 24.

"Our lease has expired," said owner Keith Glatt. "It will still be going as strong as usual at our 45th Street location. We're going to focus our efforts on that location."

About 15 people worked different shifts at both restaurants, Glatt said.

They will now work at the Kroll's Diner, 1033 45th St. S. "We're very busy at that store so we can use their help," Glatt said.

The five-restaurant chain does not plan to open another store in Fargo, he said.
