NEWPORT-One of Newport's anchor restaurants will close its doors permanently on Friday, June 21.

Shoney's, located at the corner of Cosby Highway and Heritage Boulevard, will cease operations at 11 p.m. that night, according to General Manager Brandon Ickes.

The well-known family-style restaurant opened its doors at that location in November of 1990.

According to Ickes, the Newport franchise has no plans to relocate in Cocke County. "We are looking to move to Virginia," he said on Friday, "probably in the Roanoke area."
