Water Contamination Closes Restaurants in Smithfield, North Carolina

As reported, the Johnston County Health Department has ordered roughly 100 restaurants and commercial kitchens in Smithfield to close until the boil-water order is lifted.

Rick Childrey, director of the Smithfield-Selma Chamber of Commerce, said the closure — which was announced around dinnertime Wednesday — will mean a big loss for restaurants, movie theaters and other businesses in the area that rely on passerby. Folks are less likely to shop at the outlet mall if they can’t eat too, he said.
