"It is with a heavy heart that we must announce that our beloved Wade Avenue Tripps stopped serving our guests as of Monday, September 12. Over 40 years of memories, families, generations of guests passed through our doors and we appreciate your patronage of our establishment. A special mention and a shout of gratitude to Linda Tripp Corbin who celebrates 30 years as the face of Wade Avenue and greeted our guests with that gigantic smile every day," Scott wrote.

    That Tripps location opened in the summer of 1983. That's 33 years, not 40. There have been 2 other restaurants at that location previously so maybe the building has been used as a restaurant for 40 years.
