For almost two years now, Big J's Chicken Shack  has been filling the stomachs of visitors to the burgeoning Thompson's Point development. Whether it be frequenters to Bissell Brothers, the skating rink or concerts, Big J's has been there for all of your fried chicken needs. But according to the Portland Press Herald, that will change by the end of this week, as Big J's is set to close down.

Big J's was bought out by business partners at Thompson's Point, with the space it currently occupies likely to be redeveloped, perhaps into another restaurant. But where does that leave the lovers of Big J's specific recipe? Well...Jason Loring, one of the owners of Big J's, says that despite their location being bought out, they're holding on to the right to open Big J's at another location in Portland at a later date.
