Companies dont always preannounce which stores are closing to the public and the store level employees.
This could very well have been a planned closure from a year or so ago.
Or maybe there was an opportunity to sell or sublease or get out of their lease.
Lots of possible reasons.
Ive got one a few miles down the road. Last time I paid attention, it was still open. Its not boarded up or anything. I dont consider it a great location or a high volume store but it may or may not be a money maker.
Havent stepped foot in it 10+ years.
If it happens to be boarded up next time I drive by, I will post.
Theres another about 5 miles away in a different direction. It was open last time I drove by a few weeks ago. I would have noticed otherwise.
