Quiznos – Doomed

3/5/2009:

Hoboken411 reader Anne noticed yesterday that the chain sub shop Quizno’s had suddenly shut down!

What’s next?

What? How Come? So suddenly?

“Closed! The inside was dark at 2:00 pm Wednesday, door locked, there’s a really big sign on the front door and another on the window that says, “Retail Space Available” with contact info. Some of the interior Quiznos decor appeared to have been removed.

I just called the non-emergency # for the Hoboken PD and asked if the closing was due to a break in/robbery, and the officer said no, he had not heard anything about any robbery or that Quiznos had closed at all. (I thought that was odd because the store is a stone’s throw from the Police Station on Hudson, I have seen many officers eating in there at lunch.)

I know Quiznos is a franchise, and lately there were some issues with corporate and the franchisees, but nothing serious enough that it could be directly attriubted to this location closing abruptly. I went there regularily for the past 2 years, and if anything, the store was busier recently than in the past. (Usually stores that go out of business have a drop off in customers, quality, etc, first indicating a problem.) I didn’t notice any such issues at Quiznos recently. Link to their corportate update.

I looked on the net, and I couldn’t find any articles or any blog postings talking about what happened at all.

Have you heard anything?

Prissy: Mammy, here’s Miss Scarlet’s Quizno’s sub.

Scarlett: You can take it all back to the kitchen; I won’t eat a bite. Mmm, mm, mmm. Quizno’s.

Mammy: Pennsylvania would be better for ya. You’d just get in financial trouble in Hoboken.

Scarlett: What financial trouble are you talking about?

Mammy: You know what financial trouble I’s talkin’ ’bout. I’s talking ’bout Mr. Mayor and Mrs. Land Lady. They’ll be comin’ to your store on the first of the month, and you sittin’ there waitin’ for him, just like a spare penny jar.

Scarlett: You go pack up my store like Mother said.

(The first of the month arrives)

knock, knock, knock, flatulance

Mayor Rhett Butler: I’m very wasteful and I intend on getting still wastefuler before this term’s over.

Scarlett: Great balls of VD. Don’t bother me anymore, and don’t call me sucker.

Mayor Rhett Butler: I’m not asking you to vote for me. I’ll never understand or forgive myself for screwing the town. And if the election gets me, so help me, I’ll laugh at myself for being an idiot. There’s one thing I do know… and that is that I got you, Scarlett. In spite of you and me and the whole silly town going under around us, I got you. Because we’re alike. Bad lots, both of us. Selfish and shrewd. But able to look things in the eyes as we call them by their right names.

Scarlett: [struggles] Don’t hold me like that!

Rhett Butler: What a woman.

Scarlett: My Quizno’s franchise dreams are over. Nothing will ever happen to me again.
