Restaurant closures in Selmer, Tn and Corinth, Ms
A couple of cities along the stateline have been hit pretty hard recently by restaurant closures. The KFC in Selmer closed back in October after being open for nearly 30 years. Over the past few weeks four restaurants have closed in Corinth, Ms. The Long John Silvers/A&W Root Beer place closed two weeks ago, Wendy's closed early last month and two small mom and pop type restaurants closed early last month as well. Its interesting that these restaurants made it through previous recessions but couldnt make it through this one. Both of these area's have very high unemployment rates so its probably just a case of people deciding to eat at home instead of eating out that did these establishments in.
