DARTMOUTH - A popular Dartmouth hang-out will stay open.

Busters Sports Bar and Grill will not close, even after it's management company, Panagakos Development, placed "for lease" signs on the property last week.

Busters owner Mark Stone tells WBSM the management company became concerned over Busters' future with the planned departure of a partner.

"Panagakos and us are partners and we were meeting to decide how to move forward and trying to make the right decision," Stone said in an email. "We both wanted to make sure that Busters could operate properly and to a standard acceptable to all of us, and continue to provide great service and food."

Stone says those concerns have been put to rest, and Busters will remain open.

"We want Busters to continue to remain to be a successful part of the Greater New Bedford community," he said.
