Consensus is, new owner wasn't smart or ambitious enough to realize what he had, pretty much destroyed the goose that laid the golden egg?
Here's a good example: First year he owned it, decided to close at 7 (his new closing time) on opening day of rifle deer. Guys and gals used to roll in there until much later than that, bringing in entries for the buck contest.
Went over and picked my cousin up, to head for town to see what had been brought in. He told me the new owner closed at 7 and had said he wasn't staying open, waiting for people to show up, just because it was opening day. Well, let's go find out?
Coming down 49, the lights over the gas pumps were already off at ten minutes to 7, bad sign. He was indeed closing up at 7. Icy roads that night, people still pulling in with their bucks, some from many miles away. When I mentioned to the new boy this was going to continue, he said they need to learn I own it now, I close up at 7 and so he did.
Couple more trucks pulled in. When they were informed he was closing, they were not happy. All said that was the last time they'd ever drive over there for anything.
