The Hays Golden Corral has closed, effective today. The news was confirmed by a store employee early this morning.

The restaurant, 383 W. Mopar, has been in the Hays community for several decades. It previously was located near Big Creek Crossing on Vine before moving to its location near Interstate 70 many years ago.

The national franchise offered a buffet featuring breakfast, lunch and dinner. 

The Hays Daily News has reached out to corporate headquarters for additional information. No response has yet been received.
