- Everyone is feeling the impact of the coronavirus' intense spread across the globe
- Maps Maponyane says his popular restaurant will have to close its doors, at least for now
- The media personality is disappointed that he has to send his staff home
The coronavirus is causing all kinds of difficult situations and small businesses are feeling the brunt of the situation.
Popular media personality, Maps Maponyane, announced that he has to close the doors of his adored restaurant, Buns Out.
Maps tried many ways to keep the staff employed and customers happy but sadly has no choice.
The 21-day lockdown of SA isn't helping matters either - with the country coming to a standstill everyone is feeling the seriousness of the matter.
Fans of Buns Out are hoping that the doors won't have to close permanently and are ready to support the eatery as soon as they can.
Maps took to social media to share the sad news with his followers.
"After trying to stretch out any kind of production including deliveries, in order to still keep our staff employed & customers happy, we've decided to indefinitely close Buns Out. We don't know how long it will be or if we'll survive this period, but it's the right thing to do..."
