Winnipeg restaurant struggles continue as Osborne Stella’s, Hermanos shut down

More Winnipeg restaurants have decided to close their doors permanently.

Stella’s in Osborne Village and Hermanos in the Exchange District both say they will be shutting down for good. And while both restaurants say the coronavirus pandemic played a factor, they also say other issues have forced their hand.

Stella’s, which had been in Osborne for 20 years, said the area isn’t as vibrant as it once was.

“Unfortunately due to the declining commerce and foot traffic in Osborne Village along with the current pandemic, it is time to make this difficult announcement,” the restaurant’s Instagram page said.

Meanwhile, Hermanos says they will close permanently at the end of May.
