A recent comment on our website had someone taking us to task for not writing about the Meritage closing yet. It’s funny he should want us to say something, because we erroneously reported that Meritage closed back in November.

We got it wrong. But they were indeed in the throes of death and hung on a little bit longer before finally giving up the ghost this winter. Sorry to hear that they finally closed, even if it does prove that we were just a little bit right after all.
