Why did Stash's in New London just close with no explanation?

I have seen it before with businesses and my question is.....WHY?

How do you find it ethical in any way, shape or form, to just close a business like Stash's, without any public notice or explanation?

This is a place that has been around for 27 years, and had a lot more success than many other places at that.

There are a million reasons one could speculate on why they closed: Could they have gone bankrupt? Did they close up shop because they couldn't afford the high operating costs and didn't want to go bankrupt? Did they or a family member get sick and they had to tend to their health? anything is possible. But WHY did they just close their doors one day and act like everything was normal the day before? Real classy!

Why couldn't they have put the place up for sale and given someone else the chance to take it over and keep it open?

This kind of stuff just really ticks me off. They announced on their facebook page that it was no longer open.....why can't they say why?

Did they not want to deal with the public outcry and negativity? People don't decide one day "Oh I'm gonna close my business!" Someone had to have known this for months! And think of all the people one would have to tell before closing - I.E. the vendors that make the deleiveries to the place when they call in and say "After november 29th we will be closing so no more deliveries please".- many people in that sense had to have known well in advance, so why didn't THEY say anything?

Rosie's diner is another perfect example of this. The rosie's in groton was there for many years, and they opened 2 more restaurants......and within a short time, all 3 of them closed......and again we were given no explanation why.

Doesn't this kind of stuff make anyone else mad?
