An East Grand Forks restaurant has announced its closure.

Sickies announced it will be closing on Saturday, Aug. 28, in a Facebook post.

"Due to the initial pandemic shutdown and the ongoing staffing issues experienced thereafter, we have no choice but to cease operations in East Grand Forks," the post read. "Employees are encouraged to move with the team to our upcoming new Fargo location or for those looking for more adventure, position relocation to other Sickies Garage locations across the U.S. are also available.

"Thank you for allowing us to be a part of this great community for several years! We appreciate your business and the friendships we were able to make while doing so."

Founded in 2012 in Fargo, Sickies Garage has locations in North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska and Nevada.

It was recently announced the restaurant would be adding a second location in Fargo, south of Interstate 94 and near where a large housing and commercial development is planned, Forum News Service reported this week.
