My brother says the reported reason for the closings was the intensely competitive environment in the Springfield area. Because of that they were pulling out all their stores in the Springfield area.
We went into one of the stores to see what was left. These pictures show just how little was left on the shelves.
The employees were actually wiping down all the shelves so they'd be clean when they're taken apart.
All I could think of as I left was how very sad.
|This is what most of the store looked like.|
|Most everything that was left was 50% off.|
|The bread isle was about the only area that was full.|
