KNOXVILLE (WATE) – Lay's Market closed Monday afternoon after more than 100 years in Knoxville. 

The Lay family opened a meat market on South Central Street in Knoxville in 1907, according to the Lay's Market web site. They sold meat for order and delivery. 

But at 4:30 p.m. on Monday, Joe Lay locked up the East Jackson Avenue shop for the last time.

He told 6 News the market closed because it couldn't compete with other businesses.
