All options look terrrible, but going with C.

A they refers to? since is incorrect
B which refers to stores, not one fourth of stores
D to be closing is plain wrong
E wordy....

Me too going with C, clear and succinct! However I missed "that" in C, but it was the best that was available. The "they" in A put me off.

I agree, that would have been better. But those are not the cards dealt to us.

Will go with C.

Clear and concise.

(C) is definately concise. Doubt we`ll get an OA, so just go by board consensus on this one.
