The first-ever Chick-fil-A outlet to be established on U.K. soil is set to close after being targeted by a pro-LGBT group.
Ever since the popular purveyor of fried chicken opened its doors in the city of Reading, gay rights activists have mobbed it with complaints and even urged a boycott.
Now, barely a week after welcoming in its first British customers, the city center mall, The Oracle, has announced that it will not be renewing the company's lease. "We have decided on this occasion that the right thing to do is to only allow Chick-fil-A to trade with us for the initial six-month pilot period, and not to extend the lease any further," The Oracle said in a statement, according to the BBC, noting that it seeks to "offer an inclusive space where everyone is welcome."
