A West Penn Township tavern owner on Saturday offered the sole bid $30,000 for the landmark Costello's restaurant at 100 E. High St., Coaldale.
Bob Carnes, who owns the Clamtown Tavern, offered the sole bid for the restaurant at an auction held Saturday. But Carnes as of early Wednesday had yet to hear whether the Costello family would accept the bid.
Efforts to reach Costello family members were unsuccessful.
If they do accept his bid, Carnes said, he'll keep the restaurant and its bar open, and would even consider keeping the Costello name, if the family agrees.
