A spokeswoman for Retail Food Group, the master franchiser of the Gloria Jean's Coffees brand, said the Gladstone store's property lease didn't end for a few more months.

"The advertisement for the sale of the Gloria Jean's Gladstone premise is quite new," the spokeswoman said.

Residents were quick to react online after it shut last Friday.

It is not known what will replace the store at the Nightowl Centre.
