Hoggy's sudden closure leaves gift card holders high and dry

VALLEY VIEW, OH (WOIO) - A chain restaurant has closed its doors.

Hoggy's - known for barbecue - closed six of its seven restaurants in Ohio, including the one in Valley View.

Around 100 people are now out of jobs.

The only Hoggy's to remain open will be in Gahanna, which is located outside Columbus.

Owners say poor sales and increased competition forced them to close.
