If you live in Salinas or close by, chances are that during your lifetime you have been to Hometown Buffet at least once lol It has been by Northridge Mall for as long as i can remember & it has now abruptly closed its doors!
It turns out that the decision to close came as a surprise even to the employees. They received no previous notice about the closing and were just asked to go in and pick up their last check. It's so sad because those employees could have looked for employment had they known that this was going to happen.
I'm sure more information will come out eventually once the company decides to speak out.
