Jason’s Deli inside Bankers Life Fieldhouse will soon be moving out.

Pacers Sports & Entertainment (PS&E) announced on Friday that Jason’s Deli, known for its healthy sandwiches, soup, and salad bar, will close after business on Friday, June 29th. It opened last fall, replacing Dunkin Donuts after seven years.

In the same announcement, PS&E says its team store, which was rebranded and got a facelift nine months ago, will expand into that space. Currently, the team store has used space on the second level, right above Jason’s Deli, to showcase and store additional merchandise.
