BALTIMORE — Hooters is closing down multiple stores across the country, and the store in Baltimore is one of them.

In a statement, Hooters said that they made the difficult decision to close a select amount of underperforming stores.

They say they are like many restaurants under the pressure from current market conditions.

"Ensuring the well-being of our staff is our priority in these rare instances. With new Hooters restaurants opening domestically and internationally, new Hooters frozen products launching at grocery stores, and the Hooters footprint expanding into new markets with both company and franchise locations, this brand of 41 years remains highly resilient and relevant. We look forward to continuing to serve our guests at home, on the go and at our restaurants here in the U.S. and around the globe."

According to MCB Real Estate, Hooters 'abruptly' vacated their Harborplace store without notice on Monday.

"Hooters is in default of their lease which remains in full force and effect. MCB intends to pursue all rights and remedies under that Lease. As has been widely reported, Hooters is closing many stores nationwide. This is not a Harborplace specific issue. Harborplace has had an influx of exciting new tenants and new programming that is attracting people back to Harborplace and this is just the beginning."

The next closest Hooters store is in Laurel, Maryland.
