A popular seafood market on North Beach has closed as part of the Harbor Bridge project.

Groomers Seafood is now boarded up with the sign removed from the longtime store, near Highway 181 near the Beach Avenue exit.

Groomers owner Richard Groomer says they were given a week’s notice to vacate the facility.

Groomer says he knew this time was coming, but didn’t expect it so soon. They have yet to open their new location along South Padre Island Drive and Airline Road.

We’re told a number of employees were laid off.

A date has yet to be set on when their new location will be open.
