I turn to the Lansing Foodies Facebook page when I want the news on anything happening in the greater Lansing area. Some days, the news isn't always the greatest, and today's one of those days.

Another Greater Lansing Area Restaurant Suddenly Closes Its Doors

Sadly, Flap Jack Restaurant in DeWitt will be closing its doors for good. And what's even more unfortunate is that this came with very little warning.

According to the Lansing State Journal, "employees and family members of employees have posted about the closure since Wednesday." But confirmation by a manager wasn't made until today (Thursday, June 29th). It's also confirmed by the sign on the door, which is the picture that was posted on the Lansing Foodies page.

It is always so terrible when you hear about the closure of a business. Because it's not just a business that's closing, it typically means that people are out of jobs as well.
