More than three years after its original location closed down, Red's Savoy can once again be found in downtown St. Paul.

The Twin Cities pizza chain left downtown in 2017 when it closed the doors to its joint on East 7th Street, where it had been since 1965.

It was announced last year that the home of 'Sota-tyle pizza would be coming back to downtown, taking up residence in the Treasure Island Center at 400 Wabasha St. N., the former Macy's building which has been revamped and renamed since the retailer left.

That move was supposed to happen in March, but things were unsurprisingly pushed back due to the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The new location opened its doors this past Tuesday, with a Facebook post from the business saying Monday: "You’ve been good all year and the wait is over! Our new Downtown St. Paul location will finally open its doors tomorrow for lunch delivery and carry out for both lunch and dinner."

The decision to close the original location in 2017 was taken because the original restaurant needed expensive reconstruction work, with the closure hastened by the death of the company's founder, Earl “Red” Schoenheider.

Reed Daniels, the company president who bought Red's Savoy from the Schoenheider family in May 2019, has previously said that downtown St. Paul "is part of the fabric of Red’s Savoy."

Red's Savoy pizzas are known for their thin crusts, square cut, and spicy "passive-aggressive" pizza sauce.

The company has two other locations in St. Paul, at 520 White Bear Ave. in the east of the city, and at 143 Snelling Avenue N. in the west.
