I would be concerned the Trek store will eventually suffer the same fate.
Same by me, a Cannondale store closed after 3 year. Now there's a Trek store that opened 3 miles away 2 years later.

Luckily there are 2 other very good shops near me that i'v been doing business with and they ain't going anywhere. One, Brands, has been around forever and I bought my first real road bike from them in 1973.
