Jimmy John’s closes downtown Belleville location
The freaky fast sandwiches in downtown Belleville are gone.
Jimmy John’s Gourmet Sandwiches at the corner of East Main and High Street has closed. Tuesday was the last day for the business according to workers cleaning out the downtown location next to the future Escape 618.
Workers were carrying out equipment of the space that is now without tables, had taken down the Jimmy John’s signs and had covered up the windows.
Nathan Louer, the director of consumer engagement for Jimmy John’s, said the lease on the downtown location has expired, and the franchise owner is looking for a new site.
Louer added the franchise owner has more than 10 stores in the area, and “the employees have many other places where we can gladly continue their employment.”
