The Store

The store is shut down. I don't think it'll ever reopen. The store felt like opening up was pointless because no one was buying anything anyway. It took the store a lot to open up in first place. Going through bank loans, getting a license, etcetera. But was it all worth it? The store is now shut down with slim to no chance of reopening. The store wasn't even worthy of a quick skim through to the general public. Not even people who promised to buy at least one thing.

The store has been through a lot of misery and disappointment in its years of running. Shutting down was its only option. The store hopes to find the confidence to reopen, but I'm sure it'll take a long while. No one seemed to care about the store when it was open 24 hours a day. But now that it's closed, someone is always knocking on the door trying to get in. That door will require much more than knocking to open up to anyone ever again.
