JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

A longtime Jonesboro restaurant will remain open, according to a post on the restaurant's Facebook page. 

Jeffrey Higgins said Munchy's will continue to offer sandwiches, cheese sticks and other items on their menu. 

"I know that there has been much talk and speculation surrounding the closing of Munchy's," Higgins said. "We are excited to let everyone know that Munchy's is going to continue to be a staple of Jonesboro, Ar. and its legacy will continue." 

Higgins said in the post that once Munchy's closes Thursday night, it will remain closed until March 19. 

"Next week, we will be cleaning and fixing up the restaurant and will reopen the following Monday," Higgins said. "We want everyone to know that it is still going to be the same Munchy's everyone has come to love over the past 43 years."
