Pineapple Jack’s not re-opening

Pineapple Jack's will not re-open, according to owner Maggie Radford. Xpress reported in July that the 643 Haywood Road restaurant had closed its doors, citing a state of “transition.” Radford says challenges in her personal life meant she didn't have enough time to focus on the restaurant. However, she hopes to create a food truck with similar fare in spring.

The restaurant's space is currently up for lease. Realtor Scott Carter says prospective tenants include art galleries and retailers in addition to restaurants. “I'd love to see a retailer or art gallery myself,” he says.
