A Massive Restaurant Chain Now Closes Major Location in California

A massive restaurant chain now closes a major location in California for good after its lease hung on life support for four years.

A Chili’s restaurant shut its doors for good as locals mourn the loss despite hearing of what will replace the bar and grill, reports The-Sun.

The eatery located in Irvine, California closed up shop on April 16 after a drawn-out end, says the outlet.

Fans were informed of the closure with a notice taped to the outside of the restaurant.

“Chili’s lease at Westpark Plaza expired at the end of 2020,” the sign read, according to the Orange County Register.

The notice stated that the location stayed open due to numerous lease extensions but these were temporary.

Brinker International, the company that owns Chili’s then decided to permanently close the location this month.

However, a replacement has already been chosen and locals can look forward to another restaurant taking its place.

“We are pleased to announce a family-owned dining restaurant will open in this location early next year,” the notice on the building said.

No further information about the incoming restaurant has been given.

However, some residents believe that the closure of Chili’s Irvine location is a bad sign for the future of the chain.

The closure of the location that had been in Irvine for almost 30 years follows the closure of an Aliso Viejo Chili’s that closed in September 2023.

As well as this, the bar and grill in Paso Robles, California also shuttered last summer following a “quick announcement” by bosses.

“Looks like Chili’s or Applebee’s are going extinct the way of the dinosaurs,” one local wrote on Facebook following news of the latest closure.

“They are all closing…” another added.

Others mourned the loss as they reminisced about happier times.

“So sad….I used to meet my parents there for dinner every Saturday,” one said.

Another called it a “travesty” saying, “I LOVED that location.”

Meanwhile, some are looking forward to the replacement restaurant, hoping that it will fill a void in the area.

A massive shoe retailer now announces a new wave of layoffs to hit headquarters this summer, affecting over 700 employees.

Nike has announced its ‘second phase’ of mass layoffs, effective June 28, according to a Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) filing.

A total of 740 employees will be impacted in the retailer’s home state.

The layoffs are part of the 2% workforce reduction Nike announced in February, which is taking place across two phases, the company confirmed via email.

Nike said job titles and the number of employees in each category would be provided at a later date, once the company has determined them.

Bumping rights are not available for the impacted employees, reports Retail Dive.

“Nike’s always at our best when we’re on the offense. The actions that we’re taking put us in the position to right-size our organization to get after our biggest growth opportunities as interest in sport, health and wellness have never been stronger,” Nike said in a statement.

“While these changes will impact approximately 2% of our total workforce, we are grateful for the contributions made by all Nike teammates.”

The layoffs are tied to a cost-savings plan Nike unveiled in December, which is aimed at generating up to $2 billion in cumulative savings over three years.

Based on the company’s last annual report, the layoffs to 2% of its total workforce will impact more than 1,600 people.

Savings from the plan are set to be reinvested in driving growth, innovation and profitability.
