A Schoolcraft favorite since 1952 shocked employees by closing its doors Sunday.

A bar closing on Superbowl Sunday with no advance notice to customers or staff is pretty crazy.  A now former employee, Shannon Dorko posted this on facebook,

If it’s not one thing, it’s another...my job for the last 10 years has closed its doors. Found out less than 2 hours before my shift today. Sad is an understatement. I will miss so many friends and customers I’ve met on my journey at Bud’s. Not even sure what to think, I’m in shock!!

We were unable to reach the owners by phone but found this reaction to the news on the Memories of Growing Up in Schoolcraft Michigan Facebook Page,

So sad to see Bud's Bar close. It outlasted all but Marjo's (they don't serve liquor). Schnauzer's was bought by owner of Zebs but heard they wouldn't be opening for a while yet. So sad.

Bud’s was the first stop for my gang in 1972 for my Bachelor Party. We all made it home with only one casualty
