POST FALLS — Nate’s New York Pizza in Post Falls is alive and well — a brutally slow Sunday notwithstanding. For the record, Nate’s is open Wednesdays through Sundays despite a published rumor in Sunday’s Press suggesting otherwise. Owner Glenn Gatherer said Nate's was down $1,000 on Sunday, a day his restaurant normally brings in $1,500. "(The column) killed us. It literally killed us yesterday," Gatherer said Monday. "I had employees standing around all day, and I'm dealing with customers calling: 'You're closed — why are you closed?'" In the regular Business Bits column in Sunday's Business section, former North Idaho College journalism instructor and Press columnist Nils Rosdahl wrote: "Neighbors say Nate's New York Pizza in Post Falls has closed"/Coeur d'Alene Press.
