Local News: After 20 years in business T.G.I. Friday’s in Champaign closing

For those of you have not yet heard, T.G.I. Friday’s in Champaign closing.

According to a recent article in the NewsGazette, the Champaign location is closing because the franchisee opted not to renew the franchise agreement. The Champaign restaurant, located at Trade Centre South near the corner of Kirby Avenue and Neil Street, opened on April 6, 1992. It occupied about 8,000 square feet on the first floor of Trade Centre South.  We are sad to see it go but one individual who commented said it best, “what a fantastic opportunity for a new restaurant to take the space! Surrounded by hotels, near a premium corner on a very busy street, I can’t imagine this location will remain empty for long.” I am certainly looking forward to see something new in the area to revitalize the South Neil Street corridor can’t wait to see what develops!
