Edit: Okay, but Dwight's "Little Ways" was next, so maybe things are looking up.

As far as I know, these places own their buildings... they're all still in business, but they decided to not be open on Mondays. Or Monday/Tuesday in one case. The new place I understand, they're just getting started. And maybe the other places are having staffing issues so can't be open 7 days. But maybe if they don't want to concede the whole business to McD, they should coordinate the days they're closed so that people who want to go to a real restaurant can? I dunno. It's a different environment now vs when we had our place, but I hated to have people rattle the door and find it locked.


A lot of places here are limiting days due to staffing. A local pizza place had no delivery drivers on Friday a few weeks ago, so we just went to pickup - the place was slammed and only a handful of workers.  Sign of the times.  Coordination would be good, but I bet a lot of those little restaurants don't want to go to the competition and say "we don't have the staff, so we are closing a few days, want to coordinate?", no matter how good an idea it is.

Yeah, they could try to coordinate the closing days.  I know a lot of restaurants do close on Mondays, but that's usually "dinner" restaurants, not so much places that serve breakfast.  Around here a lot of businesses depend on the college students (as customers and employees) , so some of them go to 5-day weeks while school is out.  The semester just started so they try to go back to 7 days if they can staff.

Had some friends in town over the weekend; they left this morning. We wanted to go out to breakfast and I suggested Pepe's Mexican Restaurant because I want chilaquiles. It was closed, so we went to Skyline Cafe for the classic American breakfast. It was closed so we went to the new "bistro" downtown for fancy huevos and pastries. They were closed so we went to McDonald's. "McDonald's/Walmart/Costco is killing mom & pop businesses!"
