I wouldn't be surprised if they did, in fact I'm surprised they have lasted this long.

I went there a couple of weeks ago, each pull in station said the speakers were broke. It also stated to use the drive thru. All of the employees were sitting at the table out front. We went thru the drive thru but had not been back since then. There food is not the best, however their drinks are good!

Sonic is closing all over southern WV. Princeton and St. Albans are now closed also. Looks like bankruptcy in the near future.

I worked there not long ago and only worked for a day. The place is falling apart. Went by yesterday and a guy from a bank was there taking pictures. I'm pretty sure Mr. White owned beckley, Princeton, and saint Albans stores.

I loved Sonic. I thought they had something a little different then a burger and fries combo.

ALL THREE SONICS HAVE BEEN SHUT DOWN BY THE CORP. OFFICE. APPARENTLY MR. WHITE HAS BEEN ACCUSED OF SEXUAL HARRASSMENT IN ALL THREE STORES. DOESN'T SURPRISE ME, HE IS A VERY AROGANT PERSON WHO THINKS EVERYONE SHOULD SWOON OVER HIM. GLAD TO HEAR HE FINALLY GOT HIS. AND WHOEVER POSTED THE "OBAMA" COMMENT, YOU'RE A MORON.

I was told that a new road from Ragland would come through and take a big part of that lot, too. Maybe they closed for several reasons. I also read that the owner of the Beckley Sonic and 2 others had closed all 3 of his locations."The Facts"is right, whoever blamed Obama is an idiot! Hmmmm...

mr. white had someone in his office embezzling money from the sonic accounts...that is why he decided to close them (they were so far in the red that it was actually cheaper to close them than spend the money to bring them back into the black). he also owns several other businesses (other restaraunts, also) that he was able to salvage...sonic probably wasnt ths best choice of franchise anyway, their corporation has been on the verge of bankruptcy for several years. hopefully he can do something else with the locations, the buildings arent very old

Businesses close all the time for all kinds of reasons, but I guess it is better to spread fear and suspicion! This is ONE frachisee's businesses, not the whole chain. Hostess Corporation wants to blame the striking workers for their predicament, but read about the managerial salaries in that company, before you believe it! If you're a bad businessman, or if your business can't keep up with the changing times,or you have terrible business practices, just blame Obama! That's convenient. No, I didn't vote for him, but I'm no fool, either!

Well, everything from global warming to the price of gas was Bush's fault. Blaming Obama isn't any more idiotic than blaming Bush. The presidents are pawns in a bigger game.

Do you mean "OUR" as in more than one person? Do you realize "ARE" is a question? If someone can't distinguish between "our" and "are" how "ARE" people supposed to take you seriously?
