GREENFIELD — Residents hoping to get a sub sandwich were turned away from Quiznos in Greenfield on Monday.
Visitors who stopped by the eatery were greeted by a darkened kitchen and a locked door. A sign on the door of the establishment, 2045 N. State St., said the store was closed because it violated state tax law; continuing to operate would constitute a Class A misdemeanor.
Amanda Stanley of the Indiana Department of Revenue said she couldn’t give specific details regarding Quiznos but added that notices like the one displayed at the restaurant typically indicate a business has failed to pay sales tax to the state.
A business is generally given 90 days to correct the problem before a sign is posted.
A business may be reopened after making good on its obligation to the state, Stanley said.
An owner for the local store could not be reached.
