The city of Corinth has been buzzing with rumors and speculation since news broke Tuesday about the closing of Ruby Tuesday in Jackson, Tenn.

The company recently announced plans to close around 30 of its roughly 800 locations with 15 stores scheduled to be closed once their property leases expire.

This decision has led many in the Crossroads to wonder if their location could be the next to go.

"It is a great hang out spot. They are always changing the menu and offering new food items. We would miss all of that," said frequent diner Beatriz Garcia.

Diners can rest assured that their local RT will remain open for now and is not set to be terminated or effected by the recent closures.

Business has not slowed down at the casual dining restaurant and it shows no signs of halting its operations any time soon.

"We are very proud of Ruby Tuesday in Corinth", said manager Jason Bearden. "Our sales are one of the best in this region thanks to our guests."

"Ruby Tuesday of Corinth isn't going anywhere", he added.

In recent years, the Maryville-based company has been been dealing with financial strain, slower sales, and declining profits.

Last quarter, the company lost more than $34 million dollars. Stocks have declined with investors suffering a loss of 43 cents per share.

RT of Corinth which boasts a high overall satisfaction rating and a loyal clientèle has escaped the chopping block once again.
