for those reaching this site outside of nepa, that’s dallas, pa.
my source informs me that the workers have been notified, and while some will be placed in different area stores, others will be without a job.
furthermore, there may be additional closings in the area. a second source tells me that 70% of the closings will involve cafes opened within the past couple years.
at the beginning of the month, the coffee retail chain announced that 600 stores were closing, some as early as the end of this month, through 2009.
more tonight with the ralphie radio show on 97 bht.
