FLORENCE — Another city restaurant will be closing this month.

Edward S. Robbins III, owner of Crocodile Ed’s Grill & Fish Market on Cox Creek Parkway, announced Friday he will shut the doors on Sept. 15.

The restaurant, with the distinctive crocodile on the roof, has been open three years.

“It’s been hard to face the reality of this economy,” Robbins said in a prepared statement. “Providing high quality, fresh seafood in a casual atmosphere at an affordable price has been our goal. Unfortunately, the lingering effects of a poor economy create significant challenges to independent restaurants and small business operators.”

The restaurant may be closing, but Robbins indicated the Crocodile Ed’s brand could remain a viable one in other forms.

The restaurant is at Regency Square Mall.

Demos’ restaurant closed on Labor Day weekend, and O’Charley’s, a national chain, closed in May. Both cited slow sales.
