SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) -- A longtime Sioux City hot dog shop is closing because the building's landlord intends to demolish the structure.
   The Sioux City Journal reports that George and Mary Demetroulis were informed earlier this month that their lease for will be terminated May 31. The couple has operated George's Hot Dog Shoppe since 1975. They began the business five years after moving to the U.S. from Greece.
   Mary Demetroulis says the shop will stay open until the end of the month, but plans to move to another location are uncertain.
   Landlord Wayne Bradley of Fargo, North Dakota, says he plans to demolish the entire complex and eventually redevelop the property.
   Another well-known Greek hot dog restaurant in the downtown area recently closed. Coney Island closed in November after owner Steve Margeas's death.
