I went to Jiffylube this morning and found the building locked and closed signs on several doors.

How long have they been closed?

Does anyone know if they might reopen and when?

Was there any notice they were closing or did they just shut the doors?

Don't know if it is related but the corporation closed a bunch of stores in the area back in November or December.

As you enter Geneva on 5&20, it becomes Hamilton St at the top of the hill and you are proceeding west on 5&20. JiffyLube is located on Hamilton St, on the right just before you reach Wegman's. Arby's is in the same area.

Hmmm, I received a gift card at Christmas time from the Jiffy lube in Geneva. Thanks for that info.

Hmmm... Maybe it was not them then. It was something like that and on closed in Canadaigua or Farmington it was on the news, employees showed up to work one day to discover the business was gone.

After doing a little investigative work... It seems Jiffy Lube is gone from Geneva for good... There number has been disconnected...

What a shame... That makes how many big chains to bail on Geneva now?

I went to Jiffy Lube exactly once. Or at least i tried to.

Usually i go to Easy Lube up on W Washington St. I pull in, they change my oil, i go on my way. Pulled into Jiffy Lube and they told he it would be an hour wait (only 1 other car in the bay) or i could make an appointment for Monday. (This was Sat.)

I went there because i had a coupon but it wasn't worth the hassle. Just drove up to Easy Lube and was on my way in about 20 minutes.

I believe the company went bankrupt because of bad management. Instead of closing slow stores, they shuffled costomers from busier locations to the slower stores.
