Wellington Academy Announces It's Closing up Shop This Week

Posted: Updated:

Money problems are about to create some headaches for a number of Roanoke parents.

The Wellington Academy has announced it will close up shop for good this Friday. The move leaves nine employees without a job in less than a week, and dozens of parents without a place to take their kids.

The Academy's executive director says the economy is what forced them to close, and that the business has been purchased by Honeytree.
