The Chambersburg section of Trenton is losing one of its landmarks as the De Lorenzo's Tomato Pie shop - the one in the converted rowhouse at 530 Hudson St., near the ballpark - plans to close Jan. 15 after 65 years, as the Times of Trenton reports today.

The De Lorenzo family's stated reasons for closing: "It's time."

This will leave the other De Lorenzo's - the larger one on Hamilton Street that's run by relatives in a friendly rivalry.

On a positive note, the Hudson Street De Lorenzo's, who also have a shop on Route 33 in Robbinsville, N.J., are looking at opening a shop somewhere in Pennsylvania.
