The Pink Pistol is no more, at least in Tishomingo, Oklahoma. Miranda Lambert opened the store in November 2012, and as of today, the store has closed its doors. Lambert will expand her Lindale, Texas location.
“It feels full circle to have everything under one ‘roof’ basically where it all began in my hometown of Lindale. I want to send a heartfelt thank you to all the employees who worked hard to help me bring the store in Tishomingo to life, as well as the patrons who came to experience the Pink Pistol and supported the store. Sometimes you need to close a chapter to build on a new beginning or go back home.” Lambert says in a press release.
According to some Internet rumors, Lambert’s ex-husband, Blake Shelton purchased the building that previously housed the Pink Pistol.
Based on some Internet searching, the store’s employees were only notified today that they’d be losing their jobs.
UPDATE: Blake took to twitter to refute the claims he bought the Pink Pistol:
Update #2: According to this article, Blake did in fact buy the building. According to the article before it was edited (thanks to a little birdie on Twitter for a screencap), Blake bought the store last friday and it was a done deal as of today.
