The Route 19 corridor of the South Hills has lost a once-popular dining destination and will be bidding adieu to a longtime retailer a mile-and- a-half away.

BRGR, a gourmet hamburger restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating, has closed at Galleria of Mt. Lebanon after an eight-year run. And a short jaunt to the east, Bed Bath & Beyond in Village Square is one of three area stores the company is shutting down.
