TGI Fridays in Brick Township under 36 USA is permanently closed

TGI Fridays has permanently closed its Brick Township location on Route 70.

Customers who wanted to eat at the chain found a note on the closed doors saying it was closed and thanking them for 26 years of business.

In January, TGI Fridays executives said they would close 36 U.S. locations due to underperformance and offer transfer opportunities to employees.

The closest TGI Fridays chains to the one in Brick Township are the locations in Toms River and Manahawkin.

Longtime residents say they remember when the Brick Township restaurant was a carpet store about 50 years ago and then a nightclub before becoming a TGI Fridays.

There’s no word on what’s next for the building.
