HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – A local barbecue restaurant is closing one of their locations on their 10 year anniversary.
In a Facebook post, the restaurant announced the Jones Valley location is closed effective Monday, April 1.
The post reads, in part, “Due to the road closure of Cecil Ashburn, we have had to make some really tough business decisions. So today, on our 10 year anniversary, we have decided to shut the doors at the Jones Valley location for good.”
Chris Clowers, one of Moe’s owners tells WHNT News 19 that their revenue was down 35-40% from the road closure, itself.
Mayor Tommy Battle had a sign put up saying “Business is Open” on Cecil Ashburn. Harrison Diamond, the City of Huntsville Business Relations Officer says the sign is a visual reminder to come and support the local businesses.
And while one door is closing for Moe’s, customers can look forward to another location in downtown Huntsville.
“We’re looking forward to greener pastures at our new store downtown,” says Clowers.
The Downtown Huntsville location will be opened at 127 Holmes Ave in May.
