Gro­ton — The UPS Store in Gro­ton Square Shop­ping Cen­ter closed on Fri­day, but UPS' goal is to open an­other lo­ca­tion in Gro­ton quickly, ac­cord­ing to com­pany spokes­woman Tracy Spahr.

The store is an in­de­pen­dently owned and op­er­ated fran­chise, and all Spahr could say about the rea­son for clos­ing was that it was “unforeseen.” She said UPS has some prospects for find­ing a fran­chisee who wants to open in Gro­ton.

Signs taped to the win­dows of the UPS Store — which had been open since April 2005 — di­rect cus­tomers to dif­fer­ent lo­ca­tions for dif­fer­ent pur­poses.

Mail­box cus­tomers can visit the post of­fice at 100 Plaza Court, which will be hold­ing and dis­tribut­ing mail for 30 days. Ac­cess Point cus­tomers can pick up their pack­ages at the Bozrah UPS Cus­tomer Cen­ter at 180 Fitchville Road, open Mon­day through Fri­day from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Any­one who is part of a ven­dor re­turn pro­gram and has been in­structed to re­turn an item to The UPS Store can visit the near­est store at 24 W Main St. in Clin­ton, 800 Vil­lage Walk in Guil­ford or 92 Point Judith Road in Nar­ra­gansett, R.I.

For ship­ping needs, the near­est UPS Cus­tomer Cen­ter is at 976 Hart­ford Turn­pike in Water­ford.

Other lo­cal busi­nesses that ac­cept UPS pack­ages in­clude Sta­ples, Pak It in Water­ford, The Par­cel Cen­tre in East Lyme, and Mys­tic Mail­box.
