An Iconic Restaurant Now Makes A Surprising Closure in Tennessee

An iconic restaurant now makes a surprising closure in Tennessee, leaving just one more location behind for loyal customers.

Jerry’s Sno Cones will pull down the shutters of its Memphis restaurant, the chain’s owners announced via social media on Thursday.

“It is with a heavy heart that my daughter and I have closed… the original Jerry’s location,” owner David Acklin wrote on Facebook.

“What a nice, wild ride it’s been!”

The closure of the original Wells Station Road branch in Memphis means that only one location remains in Cordova, Tennessee, some 10 miles and a 20-minute drive to the east.

The iconic burger shack became famous for its 100 varieties of ice-cream, its eye-catching, multicolored menu, and “Supreme” snow cones.

For the latter, a generous swirl of soft-serve ice cream is added to the traditional snow cone recipe of shaved ice and flavored syrup.

Beyond the iconic sweet treats, Jerry’s also serves up greasy fast food favorites including fried pickles, banana splits, and a dozen different burgers.

Bosses have revealed plans to replace the closed Memphis site.

“We will be voting soon on a new location!” Acklin assured fans.

“God loves you and so does Jerry’s Snow Cones!”

Several chain restaurants have been facing closures across the country.

Chili’s closed its location in South Portland, Maine, on May 7.

The closure affected about 35 employees, and it was unclear if they were given the chance to transfer to nearby locations, reported the Bangor Daily News.

There is only one other Chili’s location in Maine in Bangor, about 130 miles away.

“Sad to see it go,” one fan wrote.

And just a few weeks ago, another Chili’s in Irvine, California, pulled down its shutters.

Another massive retailer is now closing due to crime despite its location being a community staple for several years.

Rampant theft has led Walgreens to permanently close one of its major locations at the White Oak Shopping Center in Maryland, reports The-Sun.

Staff and shoppers told ABC affiliate WJLA-TV that the store was closed due to high rates of theft and crime.

Mobile security cameras were recently added by police in the parking lot around stores in the shopping center.

A source also told WJLA-TV that the shopping center’s management company had to fire their security company and hire a new one.

Just last year, there was an armed robbery inside Walgreens, resulting in a man and a woman taking an unknown amount of money and products.

Robberies have become a major problem in the area as stores get ransacked by violent thieves.

A resident told the outlet she was too scared to leave her car in the shopping center’s parking lot.

She says she saw another woman get assaulted and robbed.

“You can simply be walking and they take your purse and start running and they leave you with nothing,” said Sarah Rodriguez.

“That’s why when I’m here before I get out of my car I always look around first.”

Walgreens corporate execs announced earlier this year that about 150 stores will be closed throughout the US.

This would reduce the company’s corporate staff by about 10%, resulting in over 500 positions being eliminated.

News of a replacement for the store in the White Oak Shopping Center hasn’t been announced.

However, the center has been struggling to replace the Sears location that has sat vacant for over three years.

“Yeah, it’s not good, because everyone is complaining,” said resident Kokou Eafbo.

“This is the only pharmacy we have in this area and suddenly they close, we don’t understand.”

The shopping center had once been a thriving area full of shops in Montgomery County, reports The US Sun.
