Decatur McDonalds closes without much notice

Residents of Decatur were surprised as it’s recently been discovered that the McDonald’s located at 400 W Delaware St has closed indefinitely. Someone rolling through the drive-thru noticed a sign on the speaker informing residents of the closure and prompting them to visit nearby locations, left a lot of people wondering why they decided to close. The note read:
“This McDonald’s Restaurant is closing January 1, 2022. Please visit our nearby locations in Hartford, Cassopolis, Dowagiac, or Paw Paw. Sorry for the inconvenience.”
Why Lizzo Has to Make People Sign NDAs Nowadays (INTERVIEW
Most recently two months ago, the McDonald’s on Riverview Dr. in Kalamazoo abruptly tore down all signage and started gutting the building out, only to have the windows boarded up and it now looking like a condemned building. There’s been no news about a new fast food place residing in its place, nor a reason why the location shut down, but there can be many contributing factors.
Many of the managers of the closed restaurants are giving the current employees of these closed stores a chance to work elsewhere, as after the Riverview location closed in Kalamazoo, a few of the former employees were seen working on the 224 W Kalamazoo Ave location, and the store on Gull Rd. as well.
No formal explanation has been provided for neither the Kalamazoo or Decatur locations.
