BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – With the announcement of the closure of a Mall of Louisiana retailer, the number of places for us to shop in the area seems to be dwindling.
Quarters Endless Entertainment is closing for now in order to make some changes to the space and change its brand.
“We have an exciting new concept to offer Baton Rouge, and frankly, Quarters has fallen short of my expectations in terms of customer experience,” said owner Collis Temple III. “COVID-19 has been a devastating blow for myself and many other small businesses, but with the support and cooperation of our landlord and lenders I know there is light at the end of the tunnel. Deep-down I know the time is right to make this difficult decision.”
Although Quarters can still operate under the most recent state coronavirus guidelines, owner Collis Temple III felt it was best to immediately close his business out of concern for public safety and begin renovating and rebranding, according to Quarters consultant Matthew Miller.
“It is with the safety of our staff and the public in general that I have made this decision, and it is not one that I take lightly,” Temple said. “I believe that we all have a responsibility to do what is necessary to stop the spread of COVID-19. The unfortunate rise in virus cases and the governor’s new order provided me the opportunity to accelerate the rebranding effort at this time.”
One of the planned changes is a new large reception and event venue, according to Quarters consultant Matthew Miller.
Quarters Endless Entertainment is located at 4530 S Sherwood Forest Blvd.
