The law, which passed before the New Year, offers companies a drastic tax cut by bringing the corporate rate down to 21% from 35%. The store is one of over 60 stores closing nationwide. "Got a call today to not come in to work and I asked why and didn't get an answer", said one employee, who didn't want to be identified.
"The timing is - it was confusing to a lot of people because they were just two sort of opposite announcements", Gallagher said.
