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.
Checkers demolished a former gas station (later was a restaurant, I think) to build. The intersection is commonly called “Four Corners.” Chevron (chicken on a stick), Abner’s and BancorpSouth are on the other corners of the intersection.
