James Blystone, spokesman for Montana-based Glacier, said in a statement that, “After a thorough review of available options, the building could no longer maintain the standards customers deserve. Max & Erma’s brand and other locations are not going anywhere; and the heritage of the German Village Max & Erma’s will be visible and alive at other locations.”
