Dickey's Barbecue Pit on Wards Road in Lynchburg will serve its last ribs and brisket tomorrow until 2:00 p.m. A note of the announcement is posted on the restaurant's doors.
Managers say a declining number of customers and local construction played a role in the decision to close.
"Most of us will try to get unemployment, and then the rest of us just find another job," Manager Mariah Trent said."
ABC 13 was told the property was sold to another restaurant business, but are working to confirm those details.
Management also says they're hoping another owner will open a new Dickey's here in the near future.
