Less than two weeks ago a CherryVale Mall store was robbed at gunpoint, and now the store is closed for business as of last night - permanently. Some Apple users will either have to shop at Best Buy or take a little road trip to buy their products and accessories in person.

Simply Mac is no longer at the mall or in Rockford. There's no word yet as to why the store closed so suddenly, according to WREX. Sean Muserallo said the Apple product retailer and repair store closed at 9 p.m. on Wednesday.

13 WREX will continue to reach out to the store owners for comment.

Is there a connection between the recent armed robbery and Simply Mac closing it's doors? Was it poor sales? I doubt we'll find out exactly why the store closed but CherryVale Mall may want to find out in order to prevent this from happening again in the future. Rockford does not need to keep losing businesses.

As a Mac and Apple user, I will continue to order Apple necessities online. #amazonprime
