A Little Rock monument of more than 30 years is set to expire. The Little Rock Club will close permanently on March 31.
The announcement of the decision to close came on Friday in a message to the club’s membership, sent from president Ray Dillon.
“It is with deep regret that I announce the Little Rock Club will cease operations on March 31, 2020,” Dillon said. “The Club suffered a drop in membership during the 2008/2009 financial crisis and the membership has not increased to the level that will support stable financial performance. We have survived by aggressively pursuing banquets and special events. Restrictions on assembling due to COVID -19 regulations resulted in many of these events being cancelled. They also resulted in closing our dining room and Happy Hour and the combination of these circumstances make continuing operations unfeasible.
You will be mailed a final statement showing March charges. Please pay these charges promptly so that we can wind down our operations.”
The Little Rock Club was located on the 30th floor of the Regions building in downtown Little Rock, a space it had occupied since 1986.
