CHINATOWN — Get your orders in now, because Saturday is the last day for 69 Bayard Restaurant. 

A worker who answered the phone at the business Wednesday afternoon confirmed the news, but wouldn't provide any additional information.

As word spread, fans of the low-cost Chinese eatery recorded their dismay. 

"This is and always will be my favorite place to eat in Chinatown," wrote Mark Kwan on Instagram and Facebook. "Ugh."
