For Immediate Release:
An official message from Jim Porter’s Good Time Emporium owner and founder Ben Rogers:
"The past several months there have been many rumors about the future of Jim Porters. As Porter’s celebrates 25 years of continuous, successful operations in 2015, I am happy to now set those rumors to rest. It’s true. Jim Porters is currently under contract with MSD (Metro Sewer District.) Now that the sale has been approved by The MSD board, it is imminent that Jim Porters will close at some point in the future (to be determined) to make way for the huge MSD WIN Project. Jim Porters is “ground zero” for this public works project. It would be impossible for us to operate during the construction period. This project will take approximately 3 years to complete.
Negotiations with MSD were only very recently finalized. Many details still have to be worked out. The MSD officials have been very respectful, courteous and professional to me and my family throughout this difficult process. I think they treated us fair.
Jim Porters will remain open for the foreseeable future. MSD breaks ground in 2017. We will stay open as long as possible. It will simply be business as usual until further notice. We are looking very seriously at using the proceeds from the sale to re-open a bigger, better, upgraded Jim Porter’s Good Time Emporium at a new location."

(This will be my only statement on this topic at this time. Please no media interview requests.)
