If you live in High River and have a craving for a slurpee, you're going to have to go to Okotoks now.

The location in High River shut down permanently Friday, December 11, crews are busy moving all the shelving and other equipment out Monday, December 14.

So far nobody really knows exactly why the store shut down, but there are rumours swirling around.

The most prevelent one says the building owner raised the rent and the franchise owner didn't want to pay it.

Other rumours have the store re-opening at another location in town sometime in 2021.

We have reached out to the company, but so far they haven't got back to us with official comment.
