A new start-up restaurant called 'Pal'z' will replace Calloway's, which closed unexpectedly seven months ago.
Back in September people were stunned to learn the news of the sudden closing of Calloway’s in the Just-A-Farms Shopping Center in Huntingdon Valley. For the last seven months the property has been closed, gutted and cleared out waiting for a new vendor to take over. After a long-awaited period of time, a new restaurant will be opening in Calloway's place. Just-A-Farms office manager Jim Pileggi confirmed that a new start-up restaurant called “Pal’z” will take Calloway’s spot at the corner of the shopping center. Renovations have already begun.

A sign was posted on the front door that said the restaurant will be closed until further notice.
Employees showed up for work at Calloway's Monday afternoon only to find out they would have the rest of the day off. And the next day, and possibly the one after that, too. Calloway's closed its doors without notice and posted a sign on the door that read: Calloway's is closed until further notice. We apologize for the inconvenience. As of 9 p.m. Monday, there was no answer at the restaurant. Its usual hours are 11:30 a.m. to 2 a.m. The Calloway's Facebook page was regularly making posts as of Sunday night. It appears the closing was sudden, but it is not certain as of now if or when it will reopen. Patch will update this story as details unfold.
