Drury Southwest is the landowner.
According to Herb Wedemeier, senior VP and general counsel with Drury Southwest, they reached an agreement with both O’Charley’s and Ruby Tuesday to terminate each of their leases. He said these were two separate deals.
Wedemeier said both businesses have been great and a “tremendous experience for the community.” However, he said they reached a time where they feel the need to move forward.
He said, currently, they are looking at redevelopment opportunities, “something that can fully take advantage of the great location.”
Rumors suggested Steak 'n Shake was also closing. However, the business posted multiple times saying they are not closing anytime soon.
