The employee shortage facing many businesses nationwide has affected some popular local businesses. Bowers Donuts Inc., which owns several Dunkin’ franchises in Pottsville and St. Clair, announced Thursday that it must close its lobby and seating area due to a lack of help.

“Sorry folks, both Dunkin’s in Pottsville & St. Clair is too understaffed to keep our inside doors open for On The Go business,” the company wrote on a Facebook post. “Sorry, nothing we can do to prevent this step.

Employee Shortage Pushes Pottsville and Saint Clair Dunkin’ Stores to Drive-Thru Only

For the time being, starting Friday, Sept. 24, Dunkin’ locations in Pottsville (on Route 61 and at Westwood Plaza) and St. Clair will be open for drive-thru customers only.

Even if you’re not a Dunkin’ customer, you may want to keep this in mind if you have to travel near these locations. It’s not uncommon for cars to be wrapped around these stores, sometimes spilling out onto the street.

Bowers Donuts says it’s hiring and hoping to re-staff to get its lobby and seating areas open to customers once again.

    Too many lazy bums getting government checks…one quick glance at these folks will tell you where their priorities lie, tattoos, cigarettes and intoxicants. Our Liberal, Socialist/Marxist government, here in PA likes it that way… dependant drones wasting their lives away. No self worth, no pride/work ethic, no familial upbringing/parental guidance…so sad.
