March 12th, 2009 12:00 am by Staff Report

Appalachian Oil, after months of struggling to stay in business despite a stagnant credit flow, on Wednesday closed one of its gas and convenience stores – Appco Store No. 53 in Glade Spring, Va.
“We just found out today,” said a woman who answered the store’s phone. She preferred to remain anonymous.

“We’re just closing now,” she told the Bristol Herald Courier.  On Monday Blountville-based Appco  found the money to pay workers after putting a freeze on paychecks Friday. It’s parent company, Richardson, Texas, -based Titan Global Holdings, had to win a bankruptcy court’s approval to use cash collateral to release the paychecks.

Appco CEO and President Marty Anderson did not return a call to his office late Wednesday.
