Things are moving fast; people are not happy

This in from a concerned reader and resident:

Things are moving in the Scotty's Landing area. I hear Darden locked out employees and suppliers from the Charthouse Monday.  Of course Darden's lease was month to month, but could we not add in some protection for the employees who need paychecks for luxuries like rent and food? What about the supplier who had his truck packed with a food delivery?  Sounds like a pretty sh--ty way to conduct a change of ownership for this business. I hope the employees at Scotty's take notice of this treatment and protect themselves from a similar situation.

In other news, some of the folks who rent storage and work shops at Grove Key were given notice this weekend that they had until the end of the month to move out.  No due diligence was done to find correct contact information on these individuals, instead the new management group simply stated, "as you have been notified", when they did by chance find a renter.  I'm sure many have yet to be found.  I guess if people don't have a mailing address, they don't count.

Isn't it the responsibility of the businesses to warn their employees and suppliers and prepare for the handover?

Well, all the nice folks at Scotty's and Charthouse, plus their entire clienteles could fit perfectly well on the brand new Dinner Key $3 Million Mc.Mansion. The exclusive facilities will remain half-empty for years to come anyway.

It's the way of the world in hospitality and it happens way more than you would think. Many times workers come to their restaurant only to find the doors locked. It sucks, but it is what it is.

Also, if you have a storage locker, are you not required to put down some sort of contact information? I would imagine you have to pay for it somehow. Whatever is on file is how you would contact. I don't think it's the business's job to do "due diligence" to track them down.

Guess the Chart House and the storage lockers will be the first to go. Good luck Scotty's.
