Dickey's BBQ in the Tri-Cities is closing down all three locations until new ownership takes over. There is no definite word on a reopening date. 

The closure could last weeks and no word on when the restaurants might re-open. There are three locations in the Tri-Cities affected by the shutdown including Kennewick along 395, Richland near Queensgate and a newly-opened location in Pasco.

We'll keep you up to date on further developments as they happen. Sadly Dickey's employed about two dozen people.
