For all those who have asked questions and speculated about why it was closing here is the "official" reason. Sad but true.
From the Nation News:
The popular Ramshackle Bar in Mount Standfast, St James, has closed its doors, leaving 15 workers jobless.
According to co-owner Maxine Depeiza, the closure resulted from her business partner’s decision to pull out of the business and the owners of the land not wishing the operation to continue.
Ramshackle closed at the end of November and Depeiza said many of her former employees were mothers of young children.
She spoke to the SATURDAY SUN yesterday as she oversaw the removal of materials which she had added to the wooden structure in 2010 after leasing the property from owners who lived overseas. (NB)
