LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI)—"That's really kind of strange and sad,” said customer Gale Ringeisen.

On Monday, July 8th Chumley's pub in Lafayette closed its doors.

"They do have an awesome location,” said customer Johnathon Mcgregor.

The company left a note saying they were working on repairs and renovations. Mcgregor said he didn't even know they had closed, but he's not that surprised.

"So many places have come and gone since we've been here and it's just insane,” said Mcgregor.

He said hopefully they'll come back sooner rather than later.

"I think anybody can be almost replaced if you're not on your toes,” said Mcgregor. “Especially in the restaurant business."

The note left posted says they'll re-open next month. The office manager for the city's engineering department said they wouldn't shut the business down unless they were closed for at least a year.

Gale Ringeisen said it's surprising to hear that the business has temporarily closed. Especially considering its location.

"The revitalized environment of downtown Lafayette that you have an establishment that closes overnight,” said Ringeisen.

The company also says they are looking for a new majority owner. Tippecanoe County Health Department says if they get new ownership those owners will have to re-apply for a new food permit and the current one will be expired.

"I don't know,” said Ringeisen. “If they are looking for new management who knows what might happen."

Mcgregor said he'd like to see them return. When they do, he'll be back.

"I'm willing to try it again if they come up with something really solid, said Mcgregor. “Or if they have a really good chef in there.”

The notice left by the company said to keep an eye on their Facebook page for updates.

News 18 reached out to Chumley's and did not hear anything back.
