TYLER, Texas (KETK) — After nearly four decades in business, Susan Robinson Fine Jewelry will be closing its doors and a new fast food chain will be opening in the same location, employees say.

According to a press release, the owner will be retiring and all inventory will be discounted and sold. Once all their merchandise is gone, the store will close and the property will be demolished after more than 38 years in business.

Employees confirmed to KETK that a Chick-fil-A bought their property and will be opening a restaurant in the same location. According to City of Tyler records, the Broadway Crossing Chick-fil-A has filed a permit for 5943 South Broadway Avenue, which is currently a gas station located at the Chimney Rock intersection, right in front of Susan Robinson Fine Jewelry.

Two other businsses in that same shopping center are vacant as well: Patriot Golf USA which has moved to another location, and Sherman’s Sewing Center.
