As many predicted during construction, the Checkers location on the corner of Lamar and University Avenue has closed after just under a year in business. The corporate office has not responded to my email as of yet, but I can only assume that they couldn’t make enough money to cover costs.
***Thank you to all of the EatingOxford.com readers who sent emails, Facebook messages and Tweets about the closure of Checkers (the above photo was sent to me by Summer Farrell). It really helps to have additional eyes and ears out on the street in case I miss something. Please keep the tips coming and don’t hesitate to contact me at email@example.com if there’s something you’d like to suggest for the blog!
