BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) – The first Chick-fil-A restaurant to open in Alabama nearly 50 years ago is closing.

Jerry Cotney, who owns the restaurant at Brookwood Village mall in metro Birmingham, announced the shutdown in a social media post. He says the once-popular shopping venue is no longer thriving. The restaurant opened under another owner in 1974, just seven years after Truett Cathy launched the first Chick-fil-A at a mall in metro Atlanta.

The company website shows it now has more than 100 locations in Alabama.
