A popular restaurant now makes an unexpected closure after 30 years, leaving customers in the dark about its decision.

Many in the area know of McCormick & Schmick’s, which started in 1979 thanks to Bill McCormick and Doug Schmick, per its website.

The pair partnered up after McCormick had purchased Jake’s Famous Crawfish restaurant, a century-old landmark in the city.

From there they spread out and opened their first restaurant under the McCormick and Schmick’s name, which closed down after the economic crisis from 2007 to 2009.

Now, the last remaining location in Portland from the seafood chain is closing permanently after Easter Sunday, according to information sources provided to Willamette Week.

It’s known as McCormick & Schmick’s Riverside and was the second location opened after the original in the 1970s.

The publication contacted the public relations firm behind the brand but did not hear back about a reason for the closure.

After going public and selling shares in 2004, over 100 locations were opened under the brand name.

In 2012, the seafood chain was bought by billionaire and Landry’s Incorporated owner Tilman J. Fertitta.

Only one location for McCormick & Schmick’s remains in Tigard, about 10 miles southwest of downtown Portland.

Portland’s West End also still holds a Jake’s Famous Crawfish.

Given that McCormick & Schmick’s is a staple for the city, customers are likely saddened by the news.

The Coronavirus pandemic notably affected thousands of small businesses and restaurants across the United States, and Portland was hit hard, reports The-Sun.

Major retailers have also fled the area since last year.

Over 25 stores and restaurants from brands like Target, Walmart, Nike, REI, Cracker Barrel, and Starbucks have shut down permanently, per Portland NBC affiliate KGW.

Several cited crime rates as the reason behind the closures.
