The Allegheny County Health Department has ordered the closure of a convenience store in Port Vue after inspectors found that the roof was leaking onto food, including in the coolers.

The closure of the Uni-Mart on Romine Avenue was effective Friday.

The health department said the building was declared unsafe following an emergency inspection by firefighters from Vigilant Hose Co.

The Uni-Mart chain has been defunct since its parent company filed for bankruptcy in 2008.

The Port Vue store is owned by a real estate trust in Orlando, Fla., and leased to an independent operator that has continued using the Uni-Mart name.

The phone at the store was not being answered on Wednesday and an attempt to reach a spokesperson was not successful.
