Save Weaver D's!

October 4, 2012

If you haven't heard the news already, the tummies of local Athenians may be unhappy to know that the popular, soul food hot spot of Athens, Weaver D's, is in danger of being shut down...for good.

Considering how common and well-known Weaver D's Delicious Fine Foods has become in Athens when it comes to a good recommendation of where to find a good Southern meal, this news has probably caught a lot of locals off guard, and may be a tad hard to believe.

Unfortunately however, this news is very true and the closure of Weaver D's, after 25 years of great food, service and hospitality, is very possible. This is all coming straight from the owner's mouth Athens Banner reports.

Why, exactly this is happening isn't necessarily clear. There could be a number of reasons Weaver D's isn't seeing business as well as it used to. Some are saying it's location, that Weaver D's is hard to find and more like a hidden treasure in Athens. Or maybe for some reason it's only a matter of time for other small downtown businesses before they feel the hurt too; some seem to believe so.

Regardless of why, since the news got out Weaver D's is seeing a lot of love lately. Over 150 people plan to be there on Friday, tomorrow, to show their love and support.

But how long will that support last? Will it be enought to sustain Weaver D's for another 25 years, or even 10? Some argue that a short-lived mass of support will do little for the business in the long run. And that to sustain a business you have to be consistent in your support and spreading the word as much as possible.

 

So what do you think?

Do you think location is the problem?

Do you think other businesses will experience Weaver D's pain soon?

Do you think this massive response to the business's outcrys are short-lived?

    Blog: Watching movies by myself

    Summary:  I'm not saying it's lonely to be a movie critic, but we often find ourselves seated alone in an empty theatre when we're watching new stuff. I know people who say they won't go see anything unless they have at least one other person to go with, but I've always enjoyed having the place to myself.
