Sav-On closes

Sav-On Office Supplies had 53 stores Friday evening. Monday morning, it had 52.

The Decatur store, at Decatur Shopping Center on Sixth Avenue Southeast, told employees who reported Monday morning to start packing.

Bob Darby, Sav-On's district manager, said the company's lease expired.

He guessed it could have been renewed, but the company decided to close its only Alabama location. The closest remaining store is in Clarksville, Tenn.

"It didn't meet our needs," Darby said as he helped pack inventory Monday afternoon.

He refused to disclose the number of employees at the store.
