A sign on the doors reads, “Effective January 29, 2017, this Applebee’s is closed. We regret any inconvenience it has caused our valued guests. We greatly appreciate your patronage and look forward to continuing to serve guests at the following locations: 1617 Highway 51 South, Covington, TN; 2890 Bartlett Blvd., Bartlett, TN.”
