It is with mixed emotions that we have decided to close Shorty's as of June 1 2021. It is not for lack of business. Shorty's has been profitable every year since we opened in 2013. In fact, last year was the most profitable ever and 2021 has been great as well. If you have been watching the news lately, you have heard that there is a huge shortage of labor at the moment and we came to the conclusion that if we can't give you the level of service that you expect and deserve, then closing would be our best option. This is not a bankruptcy. All of our staff and suppliers have been paid in full. We would like to thank all of the thousands of you that made Shorty's the success that it became. Going forward, it is our intention to put the business up for sale.
While it is a sad, we would like to look back on all the great times, relationships, friendships and celebrations that were made at Shorty's.
Thank You, thank you & thank you!
