— After nearly 90 years in business, The Cariboo Inn restaurant has closed its doors.

Owner Jim Farmer said Thursday that he’s trying to lease out the restaurant space at 223 Queen St.

While the restaurant was closed Saturday, Farmer continues to operate the accompanying motel, which has 10 rooms and six apartments.

The restaurant’s six employees have been notified of their options to seek unemployment compensation, he said.

Farmer has owned the business about a year, and the business opened in 1925.

A lounge operated in conjunction with the business previously closed its doors.
