Columbia’s Main Street is getting a new pizza restaurant.

Stoner’s Pizza Joint will open inside the historic Arcade Mall in the 1300 block on Monday, Jan. 14, according to an announcement on the restaurant’s Facebook page.

The Georgia-based restaurant chain has 14 restaurants open or planned in Georgia, South Carolina, Florida and Texas.

Stoner’s will fill a pizza void, of sorts, on Main Street after Persona Pizza closed last summer.
