KFC on North Shore closed permanently

November 12, 2015 9:49 A.M.

The aroma of Kentucky-fried chicken and Colonel Sander’s secret formula are no longer a part of the North Shore.

A KFC outlet on Eighth Street in North Kamloops closed on Oct. 31 and won’t be reopening.

Loss of the takeout store, which has been a fixture on the North Shore for decades, was a surprise to some customers. They encountered a sign, “This location is permanently closed,” when they visited.

“It was old, but well used. Not happy i will have to drive to Sahali for my chicken fix,” one NewsKamloops reader noted.

Soul Restaurants Canada, a U.K.-based group with its Canadian KFC operations headquartered in Toronto, continues to operate the KFC outlet on Notre Dame Drive.

Other KFC outlets have shut down across Canada in recent months, a move that may reflect changing consumer choices related to fried foods. Other older outlets without drive-through capacity have been closed in recent years.

In Whitehorse, where the KFC outlet had operated since 1968, residents learned of the closure a month in advance and made sure they picked up their last orders in time.

Soul Restaurants could not be reached for comment on the local closure.

The last time I was there (several years ago) the waiting/ordering area for the public was filthy...I could only imagine what it looked like in the back...I walked out and never returned.
