Melton’s talked to WSB/the AJC about its rat problem caused by Pet’s Supermarket next door…
“We’ve been open for 17 years and never had a rodent problem until this thing exploded right next to us in early July,” said Aaron Melton, owner of Melton’s App & Tap. “We already took the proper precautions, and always took the proper safeguards. … Now we’re shut down and don’t know if we’ll ever be able to reopen.”
In a phone interview with The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Melton said he voluntarily closed his restaurant, at 2500 North Decatur Road in the Medlock Plaza shopping center, on Nov. 6 after a customer spotted a rat there.
The article states that Melton’s went to court to have Pet’s Supermarket shutdown until the problem was remedied. However, it sounds like it’s going to take upwards of $100,000 to do so, and it’s unclear at the moment where that money will come from.
Thanks to the 10 or so folks who sent me the link!
