Not sure why they closed, but that location there would be great for a Red Lobster Jr. or Red Lobster Express.

That thought is why most small businesses fail.

If the current site doesn't generate enough business to stay afloat, then moving a different business in won't make a difference.

Location, location, location!

all the fatties in town are dry heaving at the thought of not having their greasy fish anymore, poor poor chubbies.

But they went out simply because they didn't give you enough chips to go with your fish!

They should put a Target in there!

In principle, you are absolutely and undeniably correct, This is hwo Donald Trump built his empire and you will see that "location, location, location" pop up over and over again in his books. In this particular instance, however, you are misapplying the principle. LJS was there for 30 years, right next to WagaBag, very close to PJC, and on the main thoroughfare called Clarksville St. LJS DID NOT CLOSE THIS STORE DOWN ON ACCOUNT OF LOCATION.

You are also absolutely correct. It was the snotty attitude, poor service and foul up of or leaving out parts of your to go orders with the latest crew. The presentation of the food product was also atrocious. Management did not do
anything when you go back to complain, except be even more rude.

Glad they're gone. It'll be another mexican food place in a few weeks. That'll change hands several times before that fails and then they'll start selling used cars or *antiques*(aka junk shop) there.
Maybe that mobile book store will put a trailer there also at the end of this semester.

servive critic, you need to go back and climb in the sewer where you came from. Negative posts like yours are foolish. Whats a matter with you?
Did you fall out of the ugly tree and hit every branch?

This fatty will gladly kick your a$$ and rub the grease from my chubby little fingers on you while you're down. I loved LJS and was devastated they closed. Bring your high and mighty skinny attitude to a dual and we'll see if a diet of LJS empowers me to put you in your rightful place, ba$tard.

Hey big al, folks that put Big in front of their name are usually trying to compensate for their smallness. I posted my actual experiences with those clods.

Have you shopped there before they closed? Folks like you need to STFU and go back to kissing your estranged wife's ass so you at least get the riding lawn mower/weedwhacker in the divorce settlement. Then you'll still have a way to make a meager living.

The likelihood of another donut shop is another strong probability.

It was closed because it was bought (along with several other LJS in various cities) by a company in San Antonio, and they decided to close down most of the ones it bought.

It was NOT closed by the health inspector. This is a stupid Paris, TX rumor. Anyway, if it was closed by the health inspector then it wouldn't be closed indefinitely and they wouldn't have taken the signs down.

No man thats where the Outback Steakhouse is going in at. So it can close Sirloin steakhouse down, then IHOP is going in on the loop, thus putting Denny's out of business. Then Cracker barrel is going to buy denny's and the hotel when they move to thier new location. While all of this is happening noone will recognize that Pancho's will be building a new building by the two new hotels, thus putting La Familia, Tamollys, and Rio Verde out of business. As soon as the alcohol sales vote passes Budwieser is finally gonna come in and build a new brewery, thus creating about 800 more jobs here, but most of the racists from Turner are gonna get those jobs cause they dont want to drive all the way to Tigertown everyday. Last but not least "The Nation Of Islam" is gonna build a new Mosque somewhere in Paris, Location not determined yet, which will assuredly shut down at least 60% of the churches here.
