Hays AT&T store to close this month
Officials with the local AT&T Store, 4325 Vine, recently announced the store will close July 28.
According to Chris Lester, spokesman for AT&T, the decision hinged on lack of local demand.
"We're always assessing our workforce to match the needs of the business," he said. "Occasionally, there just isn't enough demand to support a store."
Four employees will be affected by the store closing. Those employees are free to apply for other AT&T positions, Lester said. Severance packages also are available to the employees.
AT&T customers, although they no longer will have local customer service, can do business with the company online, according to Lester.
