A restructuring of the outdoor shop Denali has led to the closing of the Branford location.
This week, a truck pulled up in front of the Branford location, which sold outdoor gear, packed up the truck, and left. While there was talk of the company possibly closing some stores, it came as a surprise to the town and neighbors in the town center.
Currently the Old Saybrook location remains open. When asked if the company would be closing more or all of its stores, company representatives declined to comment.
The website swesnet.com, which covers the outdoor retail industry, reported in May that the company would be undergoing a restructuring. The company had previously closed its Wakefield, RI location earlier this year.
