Downtown Lafayette Business Closes

With a “shot heard round the world”, or at least on the Lafayette IND blog, local Downtown business Jefferson Street Market is closing its doors.

This, just a mere 3 months after its owner, Rob Robinson, fired off an e-mail to City-Parish President Joey Durel, placing sole blame of increased Downtown crime on the bars and nightclubs. Why did Rob Robinson choose to instigate of fight between bar owners and government, only to pack up and run away less than 90 days later?

Can we say, “SHIT STARTER”?

Thanks for stirring the hornets’ nest, Rob, crying about how you’re a Downtown business owner, only to take your ball and go home shortly after.
