The restaurant in at 158 W. Ponce de Leon Ave. in Decatur has closed.
A sign posted on the front door announced the closing, which was first reported Tuesday by Decatur Metro.
Meridith Hammond, a corporate spokeswoman, said in a Wednesday email that the Decatur restaurant closed at the end of business Sunday, May 20. The company plans to close 31 to 33 under-performing restaurants this year.
Hammond said 30 to 35 employees at the Decatur restaurant have the chance to transfer to neighboring Ruby Tuesdays. She didn't know what will happen to the space the restaurant occupied.
Ruby Tuesday was one of a few chain restaurants in Decatur, a town with a population that generally backs independently owned businesses.
A listing on the Ruby Tuesday corporate website said the chain had 55 restaurants in Georgia as of May 2011. Only Florida, Virginia and North Carolina had more. The chain has 793 units in the continental United States.
The chain is headquartered in the Knoxville, Tenn., area.
