MARLBOROUGH – The TGI Fridays restaurant at the Solomon Pond Mall was among four locations in eastern Massachusetts that were closed on Tuesday, Jan. 2.
Information about the shuttered locations has been removed from TGI Fridays website.
The closures were part of the Dallas-based chain’s “ongoing growth strategy,” according to a press release from the company.
Employees affected by the closures have been given opportunities to transfer to other TGI Fridays locations, according to the release.
One person who worked as a bartender at the Marlborough location posted the closure on the Marlborough-Hudson Restaurant Facebook page.
“I know not everyone was a fan of Friday’s, but they gave us employees no notice,” the employee. “I was a bartender, and I’m devastated after spending many years with the company.”
With the closing of the Marlborough location, the nearest TGI Fridays locations are in Millbury and Boston.
