Main Exchange Closing Saturday

It will be a sad day for many when The Main Exchange in downtown Fond du Lac closes this weekend. Open since September of 1979 the restaurant will be closing this Saturday. Downtown Fond du Lac Partnership Executive Director Amy Hansen says it’s a landmark and truly unique to the City. She says it holds a special place in her heart because she met her husband there on a blind date. She says she loves the warmth and the atmosphere. Hansen says it makes you feel welcome and want to hang out. She says it’s known for its exotic drinks, but if stories are true they aren’t the only spirits that are served there. Hansen says they supposedly have a ghost in the business and she wonders if it will continue to reside there when the restaurant closes. The announcement on The Main Exchange Facebook page brought a number of warm comments and fond memories.
