Body

A Wilmington fixture is closing its doors.

Whitey’s El Berta Motor Inn has been part of the Market Street landscape for 55 years, however it’ll be torn down to make way for other commercial development.

The motel has a dozen full time employees. The Prevatte family, who owns the business, plans on helping them find jobs.

The El Berta will close after the last guests check out on Sunday, but Whitey’s Restaurant will remain open.
