Word could come today regarding the Portsmouth location.

Last week the chain announced the closure will affect "underperforming" restaurants

Sales and revenue are declining at many of the 724 restaurants in the Ruby Tuesday chain.

The closings will take place across the country, and the locations that are on the closure list will be closed by the end of September. The list of locations that will be shuttered has not been released.

In New Hampshire, there are Ruby Tuesday restaurants in Portsmouth, Nashua, Concord, Salem and Manchester.

I've been to the Ruby Tuesday location just once in all the time it's been here, so perhaps I'm partially to blame.

The company says it will try to re-locate employees of the closed stores to other nearby locations.
