After millions of dollars in losses, the Maryville-based Ruby Tuesday restaurant chain says it is dropping several of its sister chains.
On the list is 13 Marlin & Ray's restaurants. The southeastern seafood chain has local locations, including one in Maryville.
Ruby Tuesday is also closing its last remaining Wok Hay restaurant out in Turkey Creek.
In a release, the company blames the closures on the economy. They also say they want to keep their focus on their top priority-- the original Ruby Tuesday chain.
