Why Is Flap Jack Family Restaurant in Frandor Currently Closed?

My heart sank as I drove past the corner of Grand River Avenue and Homer Street in Lansing last night.

The Flap Jack sign with the missing letters that's tried to say "NOW OPEN" for years was now blank. There were no cars in the parking lot. As a matter of fact, there wasn't even a parking lot anymore.

Heavy equipment had bulldozed away all the asphalt and potholes. There was just dirt everywhere, and the windows on the building looked like the place had been vacated.
