The signs that tough economical times are upon us are popping up across the Valley.
First a local Starbucks was shut down then a Mervyn's and soon Circuit City will be closed. Now a well known restaurant and bar will no longer be an option for local dinners. The Hooters in Brownsville is now closed leaving around 40 employees jobless.
Hooters cook Eric Ramirez expected to come into work on Tuesday, but when called to confirm his hours, management told him they we're closing down. The restaurant served up its last dishes on Monday night and representatives say all employees were given severance packages due to the close.
