One of the three McDonald’s in Collinsville has closed its doors.

According to management, the restaurant at 848 S. Morrison Road closed a week and a half ago, because it was not drawing enough business.

Collinsville is still home to two other McDonald’s locations at 503 Belt Line Road and 520 Ramada Blvd.
