A longtime Royal Oak restaurant will close its doors for good, but not immediately. 

Pasquale's Pasta and Pizza Restaurant has been serving customers for more than 64 years. 

The current owners are retiring and they're hoping new owners will buy or lease the place.

The sons of the founders say they're getting older and blame a tight labor market for making it difficult to keep employees.

The owners say if no one steps in to take over Pasquale's, it will still be a few months before they close their doors for good.
