Bert and Ernie’s is closed

Bert and Ernie’s is closed as of Tuesday morning.

The restaurant’s Facebook page, website and phone have been disabled as of Tuesday afternoon.

Andy Ferrin, of Ferrin’s Furniture, said the owner of Hoglund’s came in this morning around 9:30 a.m. and said the restaurant was closed.

Ferrin’s and Hoglund’s are both located on the same block as Bert and Ernie’s, which is at the corner of 1st Avenue South and 3rd Street South.

Ferrin said he’s had customer’s coming in all day asking about the restaurant but that he doesn’t know anymore about it than the sign on the door. He said he hasn’t seen any employees there all day.

We’re working to get in touch with the owner to find out more and will let you know when we do.
