Doesn't a owner have to give employees a heads up on closing. You would think at the very least a 2 week notice would be required in order for the workers to gain employment elsewhere.
Not in Arkansas, nor in any of the so-called "right to work" states the liberals created. An employer can fire an employee just because they are PMSing, etc., without repercussions. It's sad that Americans have let Washington do this to them, and worse.

CiCi's is a long way from closing.
This probably posted by the same trouble maker that posted Bennigans is closing.
If you really want to know, call both places, ask to talk to the owner/manager and ask them directly if they are closing.
It's so easy to start rumors.

In 'right to work states', no notice or reason is required, however, I have discovered some corporations, do require certain 'verbal and/or written warnings'. Privately owned businesses, are not required, to give either. If you miss too many days, come in late too often, have a bad attitude, harrass fellow employees or simply don't dress appropriately, the boss can fire you, legally, for no reason and not lose any sleep over it. Many businesses don't do this because they are 'nice'. But, IMO, that's what's wrong with this country. We've allowed the liberals to take over and soften everybody up and in the process, let our standard of a great workforce, go down the tubes. Why do you think the sales of foreign products, is so good and our own products have to be shipped overseas? Lousy work ethic, that's why. There hasn't been a decent work ethic in 20 years, or more and nobody seems to care. Break it, throw it way, buy a new one. Well, that may be good for the economy, of some foreign country trying to sell products here, but it isn't worth a damn for us. If we would only increase our self worth, the economy will take care of itself, but who cares about that?

So where will all the hicks from surrounding "towns" go? Sucks for JB because the family of 8 from BFE will show up at Upper Crust or Mazzios now. Talk about a fence around the U. S. borders? How about a fence around JB.

CiCi's closing hasn't helped Larry much even with the "slightly reduced" price for the month of October.
There were not all that many cars at Larry's at 6 last evening.

I used to go to Larry's but they changed their ranch and it is disgusting. The pizza is great but I like dipping my pizza in ranch and I like it on my salad.

What will most likely happen is the cici people will build their own building out on stadium. This is where most restaurants open now days.

Let's have some fun, what will be the next in line to open their buisness inside the cicis building. Based on the towns trends lately I bet it will be another Chinese place.

This economy sucks. Everyone will be working for the government and Wal-Mart will be the only place left to sell things to them.

Philip sold the restraunt to open up another reatraunt down town, I can't remember the name of it. They will be reopening cici's in a couple months. The New owner is doing renovations at cici's.
