Well, sometimes it's not that easy, especially when you deciede to close right then and there or make a decision that isn't pre-meditated. When you know you are closing/moving for a period of time, it's easier to plan ahead. When i had my Mall store, the mall manager came to me about the upcoming year and renewing and i decieded to close after meeting with him. A day before that meeting, i had no intentions of closing. About a week later, i was gone. That was only 6 years ago or so when facebook and twitter, etc. hadn't yet taken over peoples lives to advertise.
Ouch didn't know it can happen that quick. But In The Game should at least say something if they move, especially if they have FB and possibly Twitter.
Just curious, I take it the rent was the reason for the closing? And which Mall did you have your store at?
