A restaurant chain in Starkville has closed its doors for what is likely the last time on Russell Street.

Dickey’s Barbecue Pit in the College Park Shopping Center closed its doors shortly after Christmas, with no signage in place and no announcements made concerning the future of the eatery.

The Mississippi Restaurant Association recently listed the Russell Street location as “permanently closed,” after several months of uncertainty.

Requests for comment from the Dickey’s were not returned.

A spokesperson for the company told the SDN in January that the intention was to reopen the location, with hopes of resolving the issues that led to the store’s closure.

The franchise first opened as the 12th Mississippi location for the chain in November 2015 and was owned by John Thomas, who has not returned requests for comment from the SDN.
