AUGUSTA, Georgia (WJBF) – A popular staple in the downtown Augusta area says goodbye.
The Bee’s Knees located on 10th Street will be permanently closing its doors.
The announcement was made Thursday on the establishment’s Facebook page.
According to the facebook announcement, the Bee’s Knees will be permanently closed after the end of service on Sunday, November 20.
Here is the official message that was written on The Bee’s Knees Facebook page:
I want to thank everyone who walked through the doors of The Bee’s Knees. Even if it may have been difficult for you the first time (Are you pushing? Are you pulling? – look at the Norman door). Or maybe it always takes you every time. All of the patrons, employees, friends and family who have supported over the past 20 years have been surprising, uplifting and, above all, self-actualizing. So thank you to all of you who believed in what we did here. I have learned so much from each of you. Observing and participating in countless interpersonal relationships that began here has been the greatest achievement for me. But now it’s time to say goodbye. The Bee’s Knees will be permanently closing at the end of service on Sunday, November 20. We will have a few events happening this weekend and before we say goodbye. Please continue to fully support all the local things you love. It is the soul of any community and should be nurtured as much as possible. I like everything, kind of bee.
