    I grew up at 400 Main Street in Delta. My dad is a part of the Delta Committee Board and this is a very sad thing to happen to a Pizza shop that we love, like family. I hope they are able to rebuild and provide those wonderful memories for our children to come. Please find support for this wonderful shop!! The owners are the most wonderful people you could ever meet and they are always so generous to the Delta community. This small town has struggled to maintain businesses and losing Delta Pizza would be tragic for this town. The owner had made a recreation room in the basement of the shop so that teenage kids could spend their time there playing pool and hanging out instead of doing illegal actions/drugs. Every Halloween this shop hands out pizza samples and candy… to loose this shop now, at this time, is very sad! I pray for Sal and his family that they are able to recover from this devastation to their family business and hopefully rebuild! They have my support!!!
