Chick-fil-A closes its Highlands bolthole

The American fried chicken chain with a history of anti-LGBTQ funding, Chick-fil-A, has closed its second U.K. restaurant. The Macdonald Aviemore resort issued a statement saying that the “pop-up” closed on 18 January, despite not having described the opening as a pop-up in any prior communications, according to Pink News. The chain, which recently said it would stop donating to anti-LGBTQ groups, was ordered to close its first U.K. restaurant at Reading’s Oracle Shopping Centre just over a week after opening the fried chicken sandwich slinging spot, and quietly opening the Scottish restaurant. With the Reading restaurant set to close in April, will it try again?
