A long-time culinary landmark with locations in Milton and Burlington will be shutting its doors for good over the next few months.

The owners of Halifax Original Donair, located on Main St. in Milton and Fairview St. in Burlington, said the time has come to retire and the feedback they’ve received on social media has been overwhelming.

“The existence of Halifax Donair was legitimately a factor in my choice to live in Milton as a Bluenoser moving to the GTA. It was nice to have regular access to a taste of home. This is a huge loss,” wrote one fan on Reddit.

The owners posted the announcement to their Facebook page.

“We would like to take this time to let all our loyal and amazing customers know that after 15 years with our restaurant and 40+ years in the donair business in Halifax we have decided to retire in the next coming months.

“Halifax Donair has been an amazing ride for us and the family, but though it might never feel like the right time, it is now that time for us!

“To help with the transition, the grocery outlet will have limited delivery to only Halton, Peel and Hamilton for a limited time and all other areas will no longer be available. Any pre-delivery orders will be fulfilled. For our other retailers with our products they will be stocked for a limited time until they are sold out.

As for the restaurant we hope to see you all soon for a delicious East Coast Donair and give you all our heartfelt goodbyes!”

The owners did leave open the chance the business could be sold, ending their post that if anyone is serious about continuing the restaurants and keep this Canadian legacy going, they should call 905-878-0406.

“We will keep you all posted with the official closing date, but for now we hope to see you for your last delicious Halifax Donair!”
