Antone’s owner signs over deed to Cortland Bank

Despite rumors of the Boardman business' closure for weeks, the owner said he had no plans to close

Rumors began circulating on social media this weekend that Antone's banquet center in Boardman was closing.

BOARDMAN, Ohio (WKBN) – Antone’s Banquet Centre’s owner Ross Scianna has signed over the deed to his business to Cortland Bank.

The deed was filed Wednesday in Mahoning County.

Wednesday, a lock company was also out at the facility to secure the building.

Despite rumors of the business’s closure for weeks, Scianna told WKBN that he had no plans to close. Since then, he hasn’t returned phone calls.

Just last week, the doors were locked and a notice from Ohio Edison said it would take $2,700 to get the power turned back on. Meanwhile, people who had events scheduled at Antone’s were scrambling to get them rescheduled elsewhere.
