When it rains, it pours, Tucson. The Range has learned that the downtown Buffalo Exchange location on East Congress Street will close on Friday, May 16.

"I just can't do it anymore," said Buffalo Exchange co-founder and President, Kerstin Block.

"I don't think consumers are coming downtown to shop," Block said. "Downtown has become this destination for people to eat and drink."  Before Buffalo Exchange, Block used to own a retro appliance store in the early 1990s called El Retro. Click here to read Marri's interview with Block three years ago when the shop first opened.

The three employees will be relocated to the other two Speedway locations, according to Block. 

Block said that the rent was not a deciding factor. "The landlord has been outstanding to me," the Buffalo Exchange founder said. "We are incredibly grateful for all the customers. There were a few that would make it a point to shop there to help keep the doors open." 

The store is celebrating its 40 years of fashion in Southern Arizona.
