GRAND BLANC (WJRT) - (11/10/2018) - Cici's Pizza in Grand Blanc closed its doors for good, leaving employees without jobs. They are currently waiting to receive their paychecks.
Ann Atkins has been working at Cici's Pizza since June. She thought she would be showing up for work on Sunday. Instead, she will be looking for a new job.
"The doors are closed, they're shut."
Atkins said she did not receive her check on Friday. She planned to pick it up on Saturday, but got turned around when she checked her Snapchat.
"I got on it this morning and was told not to show up for work."
Before Saturday, Atkins, along with a few other employees said they had no idea CiCi's Pizza was shutting down.
"I just want an explanation on why we don't have our jobs anymore."
Atkins said the timing was bad because Christmas is almost here.
"I have kids and one is graduating and I depend on my job."
ABC 12 reached out to the owner. He released a statement:
"After many years operating the Cici's location in Grand Blanc, I have made the difficult decision to close effective Nov. 9. I thank our many loyal guests and the Grand Blanc community for the opportunity to serve them.”
