The stores getting closed include one at Orlando Fashion Square, two in Altamonte Mall in Altamonte Springs, two in Seminole Towne Center in Sanford, another in Oviedo Marketplace in Oviedo, another in West Oaks Mall in Ocoee, and one in Winter Park Village.
I feel like we should hold a funeral. Or the local coffee shops should hold a parade. Either one is fine by me.
