First TJ Chumps location back to business after renovations

The original TJ Chumps restaurant and sports pub is open again for business after a quick but big renovation project.

The restaurant and sports bar located at 12 E. Linden Ave. in Miamisburg had shut down Sunday night for the renovation and remodeling project. The updates included a new concrete bartop, new furniture, remodeled bathrooms, new flooring, new lighting and updated electronics, TJ Chumps officials said in a release.
