The news that the Sanborns chain restaurant in the San Angel region of Mexico City will close its doors due to the crisis caused by the COVID 19 pandemic has gone viral on social networks. With this in mind, Twitter users have created a wave of comments on the topic.

It all started with a publication by journalist Diego Gómez Pickering, who said he was saddened by the closure of Sanborns on Avenida de La Paz, where he got an “addiction” to Swiss enchiladas and flipped through his “magical newspaper rack” more than once.

While some lamented the news with anecdotes, historical data and published photos, others discussed among themselves the possible reasons why the Grupo Carso company had decided to close the emblematic branch.

Some suggested that the uncertainty in the southern part of Mexico City could have been a compelling reason for the closure of the site, as they affirmed that the influx of people for this reason had declined months before the pandemic.

“He died like most coronavirus victims: silently, without a funeral or a funeral,” says a columnist by journalist Roberto Fuentes Vivar in at the moment.

According to Fuentes Vivar’s text, the Sanborns sign, which has been hanging on the facade of the house for more than 50 years, has now disappeared. It also underscores the insecurity felt by neighbors, valet workers and anyone who has seen the mining of one of the most historic places in San Ángel with their own eyes.

However, amid the wave of comments about the apparent closure of the iconic site, the owl company gave signs of life to indicate that its San Ángel office will remain open.

Sanborns’ corporate communications division also confirmed for millennium There is no intention to permanently shut down the complex, although it had to remain closed for health reasons.

However, it is not yet known why the shield on the facade of the housing was removed, although this may have to do with the redesign of the room. The truth is that despite the fact that the legendary Sanborns de San Ángel will remain open, thousands of Mexican businesses and micro-businesses have been forced to close their doors due to the devastation of the pandemic.

The Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (Eclac) estimates that Mexico, with a 6.5 percent decline in its gross domestic product (GDP), will be one of the countries most affected by the corona virus.
