More than 130 Facebook comments of support had been posted for Bricks and Stones by 8:30 p.m. Thursday. Bob Close, Bricks and Stone owner, said the Mexican cuisine grocery store beside Bricks and Stone “made us an (offer) to buy us out so they could take over the space. We agreed to do that, with all the employee issues and everything it just makes good sense to take the opportunity to get out. We will miss y’all.”
