The landmark Town & Country Restaurant in North Chattanooga plans to close and will be replaced by a Walgreens drugstore.
Owner Bill Hall said the restaurant, which dates to 1947, may close by June.
He said he will submit plans to the North Shore Design Review Committee for the change.
He said he will continue to own the propety at North Market and Frazier.
The new Walgreens is to cost some $2 million and will be designed to blend in with the neighborhood.
