I just got off the phone with a good friend, and ex-coworker, and it turns out Mike Cotten sold all 8 stores "about a week ago or so". No advanced notice or word of any sort was given to his employees, just an after-the-fact email. (Talk about chickenshit!)

Done. Sold. End of "Cottens".

All 8 stores are now (or soon will be) Corporate/Genuine Parts Co (GPC) stores from here on out.
 
About 10 years ago, there was a NAPA store sell off around here.

The one closest to me closed and never reopened.

The one about 3rd closes was advertised aggressively for what seemed like a bargain- 75K for the franchise.
Not sure exactly what was included but that was real tempting.
It is still in business.
