SPRINGFIELD TENNESSEE: (Smokey Barn News) – For fans of Pbody’s restaurant in Springfield, Saturday was the last day to enjoy their food in Robertson County. At 9:3opm tonight Pbody’s closed their doors in Springfield for good, a decision that comes just over three months after they opened.
The restaurant chain’s decision to close their Springfield store was a difficult one, according to co-owner Nick Harrington in a conversation with Smokey Barn News Saturday evening. The store is located at 2007 Memorial Blvd, next to AutoZone.
“We just wanted to thank the community for their support and to those that supported us. There are other circumstances but the biggest one was we just didn’t take off like we thought we would,” Harrington said. “Our Clarksville restaurant will stay open, so if you have gift cards you bought over the holidays you are welcome to use them at our Clarksville store.”
“I‘ve lived here (Springfield) for 22 years, this is my home town, so I want to personally thank everyone that did support us. It’s a sad day for us,” Harrington said. “It was just one of those things we had to do.”
Harrington asked us to stress how appreciative he was for everyone that helped.
The restaurant business seems to be a challenging one in the Robertson County area. Though we don’t have general restaurant statistics for the middle Tennessee region, we have seen a good number of restaurants come and go over just the last few years in Robertson County. Pbody’s is about the third of forth restaurant/bar to fail in that same location in recent years.
The good news here is that for fans of Pbody’s they are still within reach. Their Clarksville store is just a short drive away. Pbody’s in Clarksville is located as 1042 S Riverside Dr, here a MAP.
