5. Wrong again. Customer counts were going down before they closed the 24 hour operation. Besides having to pay extra to get employees to work that shift, they also had to hire a security officer to keep the place from being destroyed. This was an additional $20 to $30 per hour just to have an off-duty sheriff be there. The people who were out drinking would come in and punch holes in walls, cut booth and chair seats, carve their names in the tables, start fights, walk-out on checks and give the employees a hard time. I think they made the right decission when they closed the 24 hour operation.Originally posted by jeneisen
I have a feeling this was a plan and it won't be long now before the other one is closed. Perkins was starting to lose business when they stopped being open 24 hours on weekends and it just went down from there.
The first weekend night that the Leonardtown store was open, there was a big fight, about 50 people from the Loveville Tavern, broke out. Perkins shut down that shift right away.
