Fans of Jimmy John’s at the Plaza strip mall in Duluth are going without their gourmet sandwiches today. The restaurant closed for good today at its 1221 E. Superior St. location.
But don’t despair. The sandwiches will continue.
Jimmy John’s new shop across the street at the Plaza Shopping Mall is ready to go. The restaurant’s closing is just temporary so the business can move across the street to its new space. It reopens at its new Plaza mall location at 10 a.m. Tuesday, sandwiched between the old Mr. Movies space and Great Harvest Bread Co.
The new digs look very much like the old shop, long and narrow backed with a brick wall, except it’s a bit smaller.
The restaurant’s exit from the strip mall, comes on the heels of the closing of Plaza Hair Stylists and the move of Anytime Fitness to a new location a few blocks away. That leaves a State Farm insurance agency and the Beijing Restaurant the lone tenants of the strip mall. Eventually, they’ll move out, and the mall will be razed to make way for a CVS pharmacy.
