I was thrilled when a Harold's Chicken Shack opened over on East Washington. There are times when I get a hankering for some fried chicken and there just isn't much beyond a KFC by me on the east side. (Plus they had Italian beef and Chicago Polishes.) And now that location has closed, although the west side location remains open.
At the franchise's Facebook page
a post from 29 April reads:
Thanks to local businesses hatin on other black owned businesses is why Madison cant have anything!
This was followed by another post
dated 13 May that says in part:
We appreciate all of your support! Unfortunately the EAST location has come to and END, the WEST location is open at 707 s gammon rd. Our presence was unwanted at our 2810 e wash location thanks to te SLUMLoRD Micheal
[sic] Matty and RPG Rental and the Madison police Dept.
Did the business garner a lot of calls to the police or some such thing? What happened?
