MANDAN, N.D. (AP) - Workers at a Mandan bar and restaurant on the Missouri River are out of jobs after the business was suddenly sold.

The Bismarck Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1SVV0tg ) that Captain Freddy’s is closing for a two-week renovation, after which it will reopen under new ownership as Rock Point.

Bartender Trevor Lance says he and about 10 other workers were notified of the change in a text message and told they no longer have jobs.

Captain Freddy’s owner Susie White says the business was bound by a confidentiality agreement and couldn’t give staff advance notice.

The new owners say workers can reapply in about a week. But Lance says he’s looking for another job because he can’t wait around to find out if he’ll get one at Rock Point.
