(Undated)  --  A fast food pizza chain that's become a staple in shopping mall food courts is closing more than 150 locations.  

"Bloomberg" reports Sbarro is shutting down the North American shops as part of a broad plan to better its financial situation under the guidance of a new management team.  The closings will only impact company-owned stores, not franchise shops. 

Sbarro has struggled financially since going into emergency bankruptcy in 2011.
