After the Dutch Square Theatre closed and the building was razed, Ruby Tuesday built a new store on this site, and ran it until last month. Ruby Tuesday has been having problems and closing locations in recent years in part because the restaurant has no strong identity. You go to Ruby Tuesday for what, exactly? For me it's the salad bar, but if that's not your thing, then its hard to say why you would -- Which is not to say there's anything wrong with the food.

Anyway, this store probably would have held on for a while, perhaps indefinitely, but with the temporary closure for COVID-19 and no money coming in, I guess the balance just tipped the wrong way.

  1. I'll try to run by the Harbison location tomorrow to see if they are permanently closed.

  2. I drove by the Harbison location on 5/6, and the sign indicated that their closing was temporary at that point.

  3. Actually, it is because of the salad bar that it is one of my wife's favorite places.

  4. The sign at the Harbison location still says temporarily closed so I guess time will tell.
