Fish & Chips are putting down the fry basket for good.  Dave Miller is closing the E. Michigan Avenue location after 48 years at the restaurant.

In August 1970, Dave Miller reported for orientation at the new Arthur Treacher's Fish & Chips opening at 2418 E. Michigan Ave. on Lansing's Eastside.

Now, after 48 years in business, Dave at the age of 63, is closing Fish & Chips for good.  Renamed Fish & Chips in 1988, the restaurant will stay open at least through April, then will close permanently.

Miller's long-term lease was up and he decided not to renew based on declining business and the long hours needed to keep it going.  Here's more from the Lansing State Journal.
