The owner of Shady’s Hometown Tavern in Albany has changed his mind again and now says he will be opening that location only at noon today (Mon) In a video post on Facebook Kris Schiffler, he says the decision is based on the outpouring of support he’s been getting from small business owners. A Go Fund Me Page created over the weekend has raised nearly 172-thousand dollars.
Schiffler says his other five locations will remain closed today, but could potentially open later this week. Shady’s could face a fine of up to $25,000 a day per location if he opened in defiance of the Governor’s Executive Order.
Schiffler says they have taken the necessary steps to keep customers and staff safe.
