"Current market conditions attributed to COVID-19 and shelter-in-place policies have decimated company revenues," the company said on its website.

The statement added, "Our customer service team will be reaching out to cancel and refund any orders placed for Wednesday, May 20th and beyond. We sincerely thank you for your business and support over the years."

The business' last day at all locations will be on May 19.
