When Angie Costello heard Friendly’s in Fayetteville was closing for good, she couldn’t believe it. “Friendly’s is the center of everything in Fayetteville,” Costello said. “At least that’s the way I felt when I lived there. If you had to meet someone, you met them at Friendly’s or if you wanted ice cream late at night, that’s where you went. Fayetteville needs something like that. I can’t imagine the village without it. I view the closing as tragic.”
