letter to the editor

As owners of The Casual Pint of Farragut, we want to express our sincere thanks and appreciation to our community for supporting us these past four and a half years.

There are a number of factors leading us to the decision to close and to bring this chapter of our lives to an end.

We want to thank the many people and organizations that we interacted with while owning our business. The staff at the Town of Farragut showed their support and pointed us in the right direction when we needed guidance.

Our Casual Pint participated in many activities planned by the Farragut West Knox Chamber and Shop Farragut and we appreciate your support and partnership. We were proud sponsors of The Lawn Chair Series since the beginning and are happy to see the growth of this event.

One highlight over the past years has been our ability to support so many local charities such as: STAR, Smoky Mountain Service Dogs, Interfaith Health Clinic, LLS Man and Woman of the Year and Catholic Charities of East Tennessee.

Our patrons and their generosity made this possible. The backbone of any business is the employees and we want to say a special thanks to all those who ever worked for us. We have a new appreciation for small business owners and we will continue to show our support to you.

Thanks for supporting our Casual Pint and we hope you will stop by during these last few days for one more pint, glass of wine, pretzels and beer cheese or just to say goodbye!

Pat and Barbara O’Brien

The Casual Pint co-owners
