Woodbridge, VA – -(Ammoland.com)- Toby Keith’s I Love this Bar and Grill at Stonebridge at Potomac Town Center closed for good early Saturday morning, according to John Thomas, vice president of operations for the company.
Closing the restaurant was “strictly a strategic business decision based on our company's future roll out plans,” Thomas said in an email.
The much-anticipated restaurant opened in December 2013 at Potomac Town Center after year’s worth of delays. but on Dec. 27, 2013, Breitbart News reported that Keith’s new restaurant has these words affixed to the front window: “No Guns Permitted.”
“Telling gun owners they weren’t welcome with their “No Guns” sign probably didn’t help the bottom line.” quipped Virginia Citizens Defense League's Philip Van Cleave
Employees and patrons said the business was open Friday night, and staff was told at the end of shift that the restaurant would be closing.
Thomas confirmed that account, saying all employees were informed at that time.
By Saturday morning, the Woodbridge location’s website and Facebook page were removed.
Moral of story: If your trying to stay in business why would you exclude a entire class of family oriented, law abiding people?
