"At this time it is not yet known when we will reopen, if at all," the pub posted to patrons on Facebook.

"We appreciate your business and will truly miss you all. Thanks for the memories."

The pub's owners weren't immediately available for comment.

The pub nearly closed in 2015 before former long-time owners Mike Champ and Trynna Dion lined up new ownership in Greg Hornshaw and Bev Hayashi.

The pub has been a popular haunt, hosting Bartender Olympics as well as live local music, including CanolaFest in 2017, and other touring acts from across the world.

Both the pub building and land are currently listed for $2.84-million as part of a court-ordered sale. The listing notes the business of the pub is not included.

NorthEast BC Realty, which is handling the sale, confirmed the listing is still active and not sold. The pub's closing underlines how important it is to support local business, a representative said.
