The A&W in Weyburn recently closed it's doors permanently, and Discover Weyburn conducted a poll to hear your thoughts on the closure after decades of memories. 

We received an overwhelming number of responses to the poll, with some of them highlighted below.

Do you have any anecdotes or memories you'd like to share?

"As a kid we would go there as a family and they still did drive-up, where they would bring it to you in the car. That was so exciting as a kid."

"My first date as a young teen was at A&W. That was over 30 years ago. Also A&W was the first fast food kids meal that I gave my children."

"Decades ago, when fast pitch softball was played at Clark Park, the A&W was the place to go after the ball game. It was close and convenient and open late."

"I remember going there and sitting outside in the car and they would bring the food out and hang the tray on your car window. It was awesome as a kid."

"My mom took me there for onion rings when I was 11, and it was the first time I'd ever had them. She was letting me in on a little secret that would change my order from that day forward, onion rings instead of fries every time."

"Big glass of root beer and a teen burger with grandpa was the best."

"A&W has been a part of my life for 50 plus years. I remember when waitresses would rollerblade to your car and put your tray of food on your car window."
