I don't have a bunch of details on this one, but it's done.

A friend tipped me off that the Furr's Fresh Buffet restaurant across from South Plains Mall has closed. We were told that management walked in today (Monday August 26th) and made the announcement.

A sign on the door of the restaurant (pictured above) simply reads:

To our valued guests, this location is now closed. Thank you for your business. We hope to serve you at our remaining Lubbock location very soon.

The loss of a Furr's is a loss of a lot of memories for a lot of people.

The name Furr's means a lot on the South Plains. My bet is you still called it "Furr's Cafeteria" even though they had re-branded to Furr's Fresh Buffet.

This may have been in the works for a bit, or they have a very fast webmaster, because the store finder online is already listing just the location at 2817 Loop 289 South.

It's my suggestion that you get over there for some good home-cookin' quick if you're a Furr's fan.
