VESTAL, NY – A popular chain restaurant is shut down at a particularly difficult time as it struggles to find enough workers.

The Chipotle Mexican Grill in the University Plaza in Vestal has been closed temporarily this week.

A spokesperson for the company issued a statement saying it was closed due to available labor.

The restaurant is particularly popular with Binghamton University students who just returned to campus a couple of weeks ago.

Chipotle says it anticipates reopening in the near future.
