Update: #2
 
:eek:Landlord was just here showing someone the buliding.

Guess we didn't sell enough bundles or TA:confused::eek:

Update...today the For Rent sign went up.

Still no word from the DM or Corp that it's even happening.

Assholes

Oh and btw our store is one of the top 10 in the region right now.

For real and the rent sign is up

SO NOONE IS SAFE FROM CLOSURE

That seems pretty mean. Now you have to have an additional conversation on why your building is for rent.

The landlord
 
The landlord had been telling the surrounding shops we are closing for 2 months...we kept blowing it off every time a customer asked (bc the other shops were kind enough to tell them)..now with the sign and him in and out of there showing the place it's going to be hard to avoid.

ANd, we had been told we'd be last on a closure list bc our rent was "cheap" compared to others.

What a crappy way to find out..and 4 other surrounding stores are closing as well.

I don't know folks, doesn't look good

Just found out that the store closest to the one I worked at is getting the ax. Knowing how the stores in the immediate area perform, I'm really surprised that's the one that's closing. Further evidence that no one is safe if your lease isn't favorable.

I don't know how long the SM knew, but the employees just found out they're going to stop renting next week. What especially sucks is that my old SAM (who is a great person) just transferred there last month.

My heart goes out to anyone who is getting displaced because of these closings, and I hope you all find something else quickly.

And even if your store isn't on the current closing list, you still might want to take this as a sign of things to come. If you don't already have an exit strategy... this would be a good time to make one.
