A few years ago, PubLix’s flagship citrus tower was among the most popular places to buy anime.
Now the chain has announced it will no longer sell the iconic fruit at its stores.
The announcement came in a press release Tuesday.
Publox did not give any specific details about why it’s making the change.
The chain announced last month it will shut down all retail outlets where the fruit is sold in the U.S. in 2018.
In Japan, the chain is planning to shutter all retail establishments selling the fruit.
In 2018, the company plans to open its second store in Shanghai, China, and the third in Hong Kong, according to the press release.
In 2017, the citrus tower became the first Japanese-made restaurant in the country, opening in May of that year.
It will be replaced by the new, much more upscale Publax Cancun Resort restaurant.
The new restaurant will be opening in 2019.
