Despite the “Final Weeks” notice on the ALCO Stores home page, the company has not announced a final closing date for any of its stores, according to company sources.

The fate of the store’s 40,000-square-foot building in Tucumcari, however, is still undecided, Ted Williams, the site’s owner said.

“I kind of wish they’d announce a closing date,” he said, “but as long as I’m getting rent, it’s probably okay.”

Williams said he has gotten “a lot of calls” about the building, including a few offers to buy it, but he said he is not close to a decision.

“Everything is on the table,” he said.

Patrick Vanderpool, executive director of the Greater Tucumcari Economic Development Corporation, has been talking with Williams about the building’s next tenant or tenants.

Vanderpool said one idea is to use some of the space for retail and some for light manufacturing.

Another possibility, Vanderpool said, is for several retailers to occupy the space.
