I am a Cast Member of The Disney Store in Stockton, California. Tonight we closed our doors to the public, at 6:00pm, for good. It was a very emotional moment. After we closed the gates, a child with his mother walked up and saw that we were closed, and the boy started crying.
I have worked at that store for a grand total of a little over two years. I worked with a great Cast, some of whom have been there since day one. I will cherish all of the magic and memories that I have at the store. What I will miss the most is the wonderful Cast, and the great guests that came in to visit us. For whatever reason our store closed, it will be sadly missed by many people, including me.
Luckily I have been transferred to another store, so I can still stay with the magic of The Walt Disney Company. But there will not be another store like #827.
