ROCKLAND, Maine — One of the two Circle K convenience stores in the city will close Monday.
Three different employees confirmed that the store at the intersection of Camden and Front streets will close at 6 a.m. Monday. The employees did not want to be identified.
Elizabeth Smith, the human resources director for the Great Lakes division for the Circle K stores, said Tuesday she had no comment and would not say whether the store was closing.
The 2,400-square-foot store was built and opened in 1985. The property is owned by Spirit SPE Portfolio 2012-2, LLC and Cobalt Properties of Saint John, New Brunswick.
Cobalt Properties also owns the Circle K store at 136 Camden St.
Signs posted at the 3 Camden St. store this week stated that fuel could be purchased at the other Circle K store.
Maine Department of Environmental Protection spokesman David Madore said that once tanks are out of service, the owner has 24 months to remove the tanks. The company must notify the DEP when that removal is done or when the property is sold.
