Last night The Republic tweeted that they would reopen early next week:
@sam25va We’ve done our best to solve our issues, but will not be reopening until early next week. Sorry for the bad news!

richmond.com is reporting more problems at The Republic:
On Tuesday, Feb. 26 employees once again arrived at The Republic to find the locks changed and a notice for past-due taxes on the door. Over $100,000 in past-due taxes, according to sources.
Employees were unable to enter the building and management was not on site.
The restaurant closed for a week in July after a similar incident. Richmond BizSense recently reported that The Republic had continued to accrue tax debt even after the earlier problems.
