Dollar Castle in downtown Ferndale has closed its doors, a representative from the company's headquarters confirmed Tuesday.
The prominent space at 200 West Nine Mile Road is now listed for lease, and signs on the building state "store closed," though a cash advance business may still be operating inside the store temporarily.
The owner of the franchise could not be reached for comment.
Chris Hughes, communications and marketing manager for the Ferndale Downtown Development Authority, had no details about the store's closing but said there has been some discussion about what might go in that location next.
Hughes said the news has been a disappointment to many. "Nobody really wants them to be gone," she said.
Dollar Castle, which is based in West Bloomfield, has 17 other locations in Michigan. A representative from the headquarters, who asked not to be named, didn't know what the store's official closing date was but said it is no longer open for business.
