The windows are now blacked out, with a FOR LEASE sign on it, ready for the next business to try its luck.
But what caused them to close? Was it just not getting enough traffic in this relatively quiet side of town? Or did the owner just tire of responding to some of his negative reviewers, one of whom seems particularly happy about its closure.
