Perez says sales never quite rebounded, and that to keep the store afloat, he's had to pour money in from his other stores. If not it would have closed..."A long time ago," he said.
The news was met with dismay.
"They're going to be closing?" said Greg Truesdell, noticeably shocked. Alberta Young enjoyed the convenience of the store's location."It stops a lot of travel for me. I don't have a car," she said."If the store come then we don't go shop, they don't make no money, then they can't stay," said Tulsa city councilor Jack Henderson. Perez says he expects the store to close in mid July.
