NARRAGANSETT â The Grinnell Inn and Riptides Restaurant have closed again.
After just two years in business, the bed and breakfast on Narragansett Avenue closed its doors on Labor Day.
The buildingâs tenants, Bob and Selena Lavoie, who ran the business, said a rent increase forced the closure.
âOur rent was doubled and we couldnât make it through the winter,â Selena Lavoie said Monday.
Lavoie said she and her husband are looking into other opportunities, particularly a âpre-existing businessâ where they can do breakfast.
