Purely business - Kingsport sees notable stores close and relocate, though sales tax collections remain strong
Within the past year or two, Kingsport has seen Long John Silvers and Pizza Hut on Stone Drive close its doors; Pier 1 from East Stone Commons shut down and reopened at the Pinnacle. The Kingsport Town Center lost Kirklands, Justice and Christopher and Banks, again to the Pinnacle. Old Navy – one of the bigger name stores at the Kingsport Pavilion – is closing sometime in June and like the others, opening a location at the Pinnacle.
