It is still there. it is on the store locator.



I went to Emerald Mall yesterday and the Arby's there was doing a brisk business. The deli type restaurant across the Food Court was gone though.

Arby's will be opening very soon in Newington on the Berlin Turnpike. It is in the former Roy Rogers building. Since I am always down to Wal-Mart I have seen the progress being made. The building has been renovated the sign on the building is no up as well as the road sign. I just went by there an hour ago and they are working inside. The lighting looks nice. So they are almost ready!

The new Arby's opens on Sept. 24 in Bristol, Conn. A few of my friends were sorely disappointed when it was supposed to open last week.

There are two of those neon Arby's ten-gallon hat signs in Green Bay, Wisconsin. Both are in working order.

* West Mason St. - Across from Cub Foods/Toys "R" Us/Goodwill
* South Oneida St. - Across from Bay Park Square shopping mall, ten blocks away from Lambeau Field

My Arby's still has the original sign...so original that about 1/3 of the neon doesn't work!  They even kept it when the old restaurant burned down and they built a new one.

Just what the world needs, another credit union...*sigh*
http://www.pressherald.com/news/Arbys-site-sold-to-credit-union.html

Arby's site on Forest Ave. sold to credit union

PORTLAND — The site of an Arby's on Forest Avenue has been sold to a credit union, ending its days as a fast-food location.

The property was purchased by cPort Credit Union. It had been owned by Butler Forest Investors. Terms were not disclosed.

The property's days as an Arby's date back to the late 1970s, when the restaurant was opened by Ken and Jim Raffel, sons of one of the founders of the roast beef sandwich chain. The chain was launched in 1964 by Leroy Raffel – Ken and Jim Raffel's father – and his brother, Forrest.

Arby's stands for RB's, for Raffel Brothers.

The chain was sold in 1976 and Jim Raffel frequently clashed with the new corporate owners over his desire to serve non-Arby's items in addition to the chain's fare. At one point, he opened a restaurant called Emily K's inside the Arby's, selling roasted chicken and other items.

Arby's sued, and the Raffel brothers opened up a new restaurant, Raff's, on the site, before they changed it back to an Arby's in 1998.

Well that's sad...

Restaurants are closing and are replaced by banks and credit unions.

Gas stations are closing and being replaced by pharmacies and cell phone stores.

Frankly I'm amazed this Arby's lasted as long as it did.  Competition for the fast food dollar is fierce in the part of Portland it was in (the Hannaford Plaza Subway couldn't have helped) and they fell behind on renovations as revenue fell, creating a death spiral not unlike the demise of the Bonanza in Augusta. Limited access was a hindrance, too; if you approached this Arby's from the north you had to turn onto Baxter Boulevard and into the Hannaford Plaza to get there. And then, of course, Arby's as a concept has seen better days. Sentimentality on the part of the Raffels must have played a role in keeping this unit open well past its expiration date.  Of the other Maine freestanding Arby's, Auburn is in marginal shape, while Topsham, being a newer unit, is quite nice inside.  I haven't been to the Augusta or Waterville locations.

Update Dec. 2011: The former Portland Arby's has been demolished.

Update Jan 2012: Here's a photo album of the demolition process and construction of the credit union.  cPort also demolished the former Bonanza in Augusta.

* Arby's just recently introduced a new logo:


* Arby's introduced a new ad campaign for their freshly-sliced roast beef and turkey products, comparing themselves to other chains, like Subway for example, since Arby's slices their meat in-store, and not at an out-of-town factory.

I wonder how many months/years it will take to get franchisees to conform their signage to the new logo.

I hope a good while, the new logo is definitely a downgrade. The old logo the A and y lined up with the hat.
The new logo just reeks of trying to be modern with all lowercase, also why is the hat 3d but not the text?
Stupid, this is how NOT to update a logo imo.

The local Arby's in Elyria, Ohio, on the other side of SR57 from Midway Mall closed this past December, and was bulldozed yesterday, according to an article in today's Morning Journal newspaper. Sad to see it go! This location opened in 1986. Apparently, the owners thought it'd be best to bulldoze the building and sell the land, rather than bring the building up to code.



There was a second location inside Midway Mall itself, but it closed a while back. Some of its neighbors in the Food Court there were A&W Hot Dogs & More, Dairy Queen/Orange Julius, Chao Praya Chinese Eatery, and McDonald's (back then, one of THREE in that immediate vicinity - the other two were right across from this Arby's and attached to a BP on an adjacent corner to the mall). All of those restaurants are gone, and even their 1st and 2nd replacements are gone as well.

Here is a link to the news story, with a video of the razing:

It's essentially just the same logo with different text. I don't know it just looks uglier to me with the shiny computer generated look to it.
