Unknown why they shut down the locations at this time.
The business did not tell their employees.  Just up and closed down.

“…We have fundamentally examined every part of our business and we will continue to actively consider all options that allow ServiCom to put maximum effort where we can succeed and operate profitably. As part of this process, our goals need to be focused on a select group of core businesses. Unfortunately, reaching that goal requires the tough decision to eliminate jobs, which means losing colleagues and parting with friends and co-workers. The decision was difficult and we are sure it will impact many of them in the days to come and we wish them the best in their future endeavors.”
