PHILADELPHIA (AP) - The Melrose Diner, a 24-hour south Philadelphia staple, is scheduled to reopen this week after being closed due to a fire in July.

KYW radio reports that the eatery is to reopen at 8 a.m. Wednesday.

General manager Nicole Platzer says the restaurant will be open 24 hours, but from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. plans “50 percent off customer appreciation.”

Diner employees have been working at the sister establishment, the Broad Street Diner, for a little over a month.

Platzer says the owner didn’t want to leave anyone without a job during the temporary closure following the July 24 fire.
