As we reported earlier this month, the iconic local store Jimbo's Quick Stop has announced that the were closing their doors.

Well today is that day.  The locally owned family business has been open in Southwest Louisiana for the past 40 years but today they shut their doors forever.

Folks all over the area relied on Jimbo's for their gas, hot breakfast, fishing tackle, monster hamburgers and a friendly face and smile each day.

Now The Spot bar and grill which is located directly behind Jimbo's will remain open with live music, Karaoke and sports games on their TV's.

Sad day today as we say goodbye to a iconic landmark and business in Southwest Louisiana.  Thank you Kim for sharing your terrific staff and service with all of us.  Y'all will be missed.
