The first day of a mandatory 15-day closure for Jackson County restaurants, bars and theaters has come and gone for a pair of Downtown Lee’s Summit businesses. Both Frankie Farelanes and Fringe Beerworks report a positive response from customers.

Logan Schneiders at Frankie Farelanes reports, “Sales are down, but still enough to stay open.” Claire Wisker at Fringe said it’s “been a good turnout, considering they can’t come in and stay.” Claire added, “Regular customers definitely showed their support.”

Throughout this 15-day closure Frankie Farelanes is offering customers carry out and delivery options. Fringe offers area customers curbside pickup and carry out seven days a week. During this time Fringe will have new business hours. Weekdays from 3 to 8 p.m., Saturday and Sunday from noon to 8 p.m.
