Popeyes announces closure, cites poor sales


Citing a lack of business, the Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen restaurant located at 807 South Mission Street closed on Aug. 22.

Its closure was announced by a sign taped to the building's front door, which reads "Dear customers, this location is now closed due to lack of business. We would like to thank all the customers that supported us during the time we were open.”

People in the community took to social media to post the news of the business' closing.

The restaurant first opened in fall 2014. Before then, the property had been vacant since 2006 after the Main Lounge bar was destroyed by a fire.
