The signs read “Closed for Reorganization.”
The men shrugged and off they went down the road. But that’s how fast it happened.
Overnight, the Dog & Bee went from bustling business to a barren building.
The employees were all called to a mandatory meeting Wednesday night and left without jobs.
Even the Dog & Bee’s Facebook status was promoting its karaoke competition that was supposed to take place that night but was then updated at the time of the competition start with the closing notice.
Apparently, all is still relatively well as far as the business goes.
Dog & Bee owner Brenda Hughes said of the closing, “We’re reorganizing. We’re bringing in another management group.
“It’s going to take about three weeks, and we’re changing the entire kitchen to make it a little more efficient.
“We just couldn’t seem to get on top of it, so we figured the best thing to do was close it.”
The Dog & Bee has been open for nearly two years.
And though the staff was unexpectedly left without work, they were welcome to reapply.
The pub is expected to reopen in about a month.
