Roscoe’s Owners Hold Sale

PHOENIX, Ore. – The owners of Roscoe’s BBQ are selling everything in the restaurant as part of their efforts to close the business and focus on the health of co-owner Will Moore.

In February, Moore contracted a rare skin disorder called Stevens-Johnson Syndrome, which causes painful sores and skin loss inside and outside the body. He has been in and out of the hospital since then, and decided with his wife and co-owner Nikola to close the business for good last month.

The couple does not have health insurance, and have been trying to find ways to pay Will’s mounting medical bills. They are holding a yard sale at Roscoe’s on Saturday, where they will sell off everything from inside the restaurant, including tables, chairs, silverware, paintings, and kitchen appliances.

They have also received help from the community. Since first sharing their story last week, the couple’s mailbox has been flooded with letters and cards, many with checks to help pay those medical expenses. Nikola said she is grateful for the support.

“A lot of these people have never met us, or some of these people have never been to Roscoe’s,” she said.

“You never know how many people think of you and love you and are praying for you, until something comes up like this.”

The yard sale will be held Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Roscoe’s BBQ. The address is 117 S. Main St. in Phoenix.

    How unfortunate, for the owners of Roscoes bbq. Finacial concerns clearly understood. However,,,,Roscoes bbq has been contracted and paid a significant amount of money to cater an upcoming wedding. Roscoes seem unwilling to speak to the people who hired them. Again, your health issues are understood, yet ignoring the people to whom you are owing that sigificant amount of money to is rude.

      You have no clue what you are talking about. Please keep your nose in your own business and not mine. You’re just upset because you couldn’t sway them your way. They will be having the best BBQ in southern oregon at their wedding.
