The Kingsport Times-News reports the Mountaineer Restaurant will be closing after forty years of doing business in Hawkins County. According to owner Jim Lewis, the building will be torn down to make way for a Walgreens.
(The planned Walgreens is about five miles from a Walgreens just off 11-W at Allandale, which is about 3.5 miles from another Walgreens to the east on 11-W in Kingsport.)
The last day of business for the 192-seat restaurant in Church Hill will be Thursday, April 3.
