Customers react to the unexplained closure for Comet Cleaners

ABILENE, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) -  A local laundry store has offered no explanation to their sudden closure which has left customers without clothes.

According to customers, Comet Cleaners has been closed for four days. A sign placed on the door read, "Be back in 1 hour. Sorry for the inconvenience."

The sign has been there since Friday, according to customers.

With doors closed and no employees to be found, some customers ended up taking the situation in their own hands by entering the store through an unlocked door to retrieve their clothes that they have waited days for. 

Ken Edwards, the owner of Comet Cleaners, has not offered an explanation  for the lengthy closure. According to an employee at their Judge Ely location, Edwards "did not want to comment."
