Battle Creek’s Griffin Grill & Pub Say Consumers Energy Shut Them Down Unexpectedly
The Following Statement Was Sent To Us From Consumers Regarding The Shutoff:
We always want to work with our customers when we need to do work that affects their service, which is why we mailed a postcard on May 18 to them and about 40 other customers. We can’t say why they didn’t see the mailing, of course, but we’d encourage them to work with our Business Center about this or any other issue.
There seems to be some controversy going down in Battle Creek as the Griffin Grill & Pub is claiming that Consumers Energy showed up last week in the middle of dinner service and pretty much told them they had to close down immediately, without any forewarning.
Our sincerest apologies to our customers that we had to hurriedly ask to leave tonight. Consumer's Power showed up tonight...a Thursday night and said we're shutting you down at 9pm to upgrade the system/structure around you. Ummmm NO, you're not! We were never notified, nor were City Officials.
We were closed Monday and Tuesday this week. Really? #opportunitymissed Hats off to the guys on the ground for working with us "to allow" us until 10:30 to close down. A BIG [middle finger] to Consumer's Energy management for ZERO COMMUNICATION with the downtown business owners.
