With just three weeks until Christmas the management for Carino's Italian Restaurant informed staff Tuesday December 3, that they were out of a job and Carino's was closing the Texarkana Store.

After calling and speaking to employees at the Texarkana eatery, I was told that employees received no notice, or compensations and no reason was given. They were just told that Tuesday was their last day.

I spoke to a local manager that would only identify himself as Brandon but he had "No comment" as to why the store was closing, or questions about the staff. He directed me to their corporate website, but at the time of this posting my calls had not been returned.
