Vann's store in Evergreen closing
The Vann's electronics and appliance store in Evergreen is closing in mid-June, making it the third store to close since the company emerged from bankruptcy.
Store manager Health Childree tells The Daily Inter Lake the company hasn't found a new location after being unable to reach a lease agreement.
Vann's Acquisition LLC purchased the chain of stores for $4.5 million after the company filed for bankruptcy last year. Company founder and building owner Pete Vann told the Missoulian that Vann's Acquisition had sought a 40 percent reduction in the lease price.
The Missoula store is scheduled to close on May 30 while the Hamilton store closed this spring.
The company is moving its headquarters to Bozeman. It has stores in Bozeman and Billings and the ON store in Missoula's Southgate Mall.
