Village Inn plans to open in the old TGI Friday’s restaurant in west Greeley in mid March. TGI Friday’s closed in November after eight years. The new owner Michael Scott said.

“I think that location, because of Kohl’s and Target, those two in particular, could be a real benefit. The people who go to Target, and Kohls, they’re family-oriented guests, which is who we want.”

TGI Friday’s was the second corporate chain restaurant in Greeley to close within a month. Johnny Carino’s closed in mid-October after 12 years in Greeley.
