OAK RIDGE - What has been a fixture in Oak Ridge for nearly 10 years is no more. A letter posted on the front door of JP Looneys in Oak Ridge Commons shopping center thanks its loyal patrons for their support and invites them to visit the Looneys Wing Wagon Food Truck for "famous wings and Looney chips."

"Sunday, July 30, was JP Looneys' final day of business in Oak Ridge. After 30 years of continuous operation in the Triad area and almost 10 years in Oak Ridge we have decided to cease our brick-and-mortar operations," JP Looneys co-owner Kevin McCallister wrote in this letter he requested we publish.

"From the entire JP Looneys family, we wanted to take this opportunity to reach out to all our faithful customers for their long-lasting support of the JP Looneys brand and say 'Thank You!'

"Without each of you, our growth and prosperity would not have been possible. We also want to say a special thanks to the Cooke family (owners of Oak Ridge Commons). Without their vision for the business landscape of Oak Ridge our opportunity in the area would not have been possible.

"We are confident that the next business to occupy our space at 2213 Oak Ridge Road will be just as fruitful in the years to come.

"Thanks again to all of our loyal 'Looney-Tics,' and the next time you are craving some Looney chips and wings, just check out the Looneys Wing Wagon food truck calendar (on Facebook and Twitter) and stop by and say 'Hi.'"
