What's the deal with the Moose bar/lodge closing?

Lots of reasons. Mooses are closing across the county. In fact, all the fraternal and veterans clubs are losing membership and participation nationwide. When you have a small population base it doesn't help. It's nearly impossible to keep one going in a town with less than 10,000 population. Cherokee Village has a fairly active antlered animal club, and Horshoe Bend has the raptor bird club, but there are more people there of the retired demographic, and although there is more to fraternal organizations the other two mentioned are also not on the main highway where people are scared to even be seen or leave after two drinks.

i whould like to say i am a mooser member and our lodge is mostly retired people and was told one of the bank bonds had to be cashed in on the place also as a fairly new member the retired people there dont really like to see young new comers thats at least at the lodge i go to so it chould be the reason why a lot of the lodges are not doing well there and they dont seem to like change there as many new suggestions have been made at our lodge on ways and fundraiser for the lodge has a lot to do also whith the people that sits on the board at the moose lodge as well and in the town im in cops are on every corner so there arent to many drinks sold there unless they have a driver to prevent dui

The Moose Lodge is supposed to be a community type building, but instead it's an excuse to have a bar where the white trash folk hang around. Terrible.

do you know how much money that the Moose lodge in Salem raised for families needing help!!! They raised over $8000 dollars for the White family to help with the medical surgery he had to have... So if being a group of people that care about others and help raise money to help and support others that they call friends, I am PROUD to be WHITE TRASH That was just the last benefit that they did there have been several more and they helped families in need with Christmas and with meals... Sounds like a great group of people to me

One of the main reason's it closed is because they didn't know how to run the place. Just because your a member in good standing for years don't mean you know how to run a club. There was to many chief's, and they didn't want to change with the times. I can't count the times I've drove by there, and tried to read the little sign out front, and you can't even read it. Different colored letters, missing letters, and so on, they just didn't give a shit. It's a shame. Them old farts don't like change, and they blame the people in the area. The club in c.v. is doing ok, at least you can go there and eat a rib eye dinner, and other dinners during the month.
