Local News

SALEM, Va. (WFXR) – For over a decade and a half, a local seafood market has been serving fresh seafood to residents of the Roanoke Valley but on Wednesday, they announced that it is going to be closing its doors in October.

Capt’n Paul’s Seafood, located on Main Street in Salem, is famous for its fresh fish, crab legs and crab cakes – among other fresh seafood items.

In a Facebook post, Capt’n Paul’s Seafood mentions the closure is due to the increasing costs and that several of the items it sells are priced at cost which makes it difficult to make a profit.

Capt’n Paul’s Seafood will close its doors on Saturday, Oct. 17.
