The sub shop that refused to close

The Seattle Times has a story about a Quiznos sub shop apparently abandoned by its franchise owners, leaving the employees stranded without pay or food supplies in November of 2004.

Instead of just walking away from the job, the 25-year old store manager and three other employees kept the store running by using the money from the day’s sales to buy lunch meat and other supplies from the local supermarket, paying themselves with whatever money’s left over.

I can’t say that I would do the same thing, nor do I think it was the best idea, but I have to salute their gumption.
