WELLS, TX (KTRE) - It is not business as usual at the R&R Mercantile gas station in Wells. The store was run by the controversial church group the "Church of Wells," but now it's closed.

The East Texas News spoke with Rick Trudeau Wednesday, and he confirmed that the store was closed. Trudeau is a deacon with the church.

Trudeau said the store was on a temporary shut down due to lack of business.
