The Sbarro pizza location at Omaha's Westroads Mall will be the only one left in Nebraska after the company said Wednesday that it is closing 155 of its locations, mostly in mall food courts, where traffic has declined.

Jonathan Dedmon, a representative for Sbarro, said the targeted locations' last day of business was Wednesday. The closures affect 1,400 workers, but not 175 locations owned by franchisees.

The Sbarro at Oak View Mall in Omaha and at Gateway Mall in Lincoln are among those closing. The Sbarro at the Mall of the Bluffs closed last November.
