I am at such a loss of words right now I can't even think what to title this post. Shocked, saddened??? We had a mandatory meeting tonight at work which included front and back of the house, now in the restaurant business when a meeting like this is called including the front and BACK of house staff there must be something big going on....... An expansion, a menu change, or a new manager... I wish it was all those and more but I was so sad when she said " I am sorry this will be the last night that we will be opened"
I am sure you can imagine the shock we all felt. Some of these loyal people have been with this place for 20+ years. I worked for this place 5 years ago and then moved to California and when I decided to move back to South Carolina this was the first place I called and they took me back in a heartbeat.
Now I don't know what kind of things were happeing on the money side of things but I know how tough it is to manage a business in the food industry. I just wish we would have been given some notice of some kind. Enough to find another job. I am lucky I was on the lookout for another job and had an interview today so it was the stars lining up... I have never worked for a place where they just closed up shop, If you could keep my co-workers in your thoughts and prayers. I do hope that we all see that there is a silver lining and there is a light at the the end of the tunnel.......'
No stitching today, but I will have about three weeks free time until I start my job so I will be able to fit some XS in
