Todd Pegg of Sportsman's Specialties in Harrisonburg is now serving as a chemical warfare officer in the National Guard.
Pegg told customers his shop would not close, but now the store is up for lease. Friends who were left to man the store after Pegg's deployment said it made business sense to shut down. However, this came as a shock to the business' former owner and customers alike.
Legal action may be taken to fulfill financial obligations when Pegg returns.
