Why did McDonalds close?

The Village has nothing to do with the decisions made by private business to locate or shut down their restaurants. Private owners and developers make location decisions based on demographics, service radius, other franchises/competitors, and of course profits. In fact, if a property is zoned commercial for a business the business doesn’t need approval to locate within the Village limits. McDonald’s made a business decision based on economics to shut down this location.
