The Country Cupboard restaurant and gift shop, near Lewisburg, expects to close by the end of February, according a news release from the nearly 50-year old eatery.

The CEO and Co-owner Chris Baylor said many economic conditions played a role in the decision.

“There isn’t one factor that led to our family’s decision to close Country Cupboard,” said Baylor.

Baylor went onto cite food costs, staffing issues and the pandemic, all playing a role in the closure.

He added they hope to transition many of the Country Cupboard employees to other company properties, which includes the Best Western Plus, Country Inn and Suites by Radison, and Matty’s Sporthouse Grill.

The restaurant hopes to remain open through February, to give customers a chance to use any gift certificates.
