Central Cab to close Aug. 14

Minot’s Central Cab Company will be closing permanently in about a week, according to a Facebook post made on the company’s page.

The post said that the local taxi service will operate until 4 p.m. on Aug. 14, calling the choice to close a tough one. However, the post was vague as to why it was closing up shop, saying that a lack of business was not to blame for the decision.

“This is the toughest decision we’ve had to make because it involves a lot of people, and for that, I am sorry,” the post said, “I could list the reasons and causes, but that may end up getting political. If you understand what is going on with our economy and world, you will know the reasons and causes.”

The post concludes by thanking the local community and customers for their commitment and loyalty, and their management, drivers and dispatchers, and was signed by the Team at Central Cab Company and Taxi 9000.

Central Cab Company management was contacted regarding the post, saying only, “no comment.”
