HATTIESBURG, MS. (WDAM) - A Hattiesburg sports bar and grill closed its doors Wednesday telling all 40 staff members that they no longer have jobs.

The Alumni House, located by the Grand Movie Theatre, in Hattiesburg shut down Wednesday morning. The restaurant's Assistant General Manager, Brad King, said the decision to close their doors was made due to declining profits and management issues.

Employees of the sports bar will receive their last checks in the mail. King said the owners of the Alumni House will likely put the building and it's contents like it's many big screen TV's up for sale.

Investigators from the Department of Revenue showed up on Thursday inquiring about the owner's whereabouts.
