Chinalite out of business

I think Chinalite on Southport is out of business. They were closed on Friday night and have a 'For Rent' sign posted.
I loved their food for delivery...some of my favorite food in Chicago, and healthier with all the veggies, non-goopy sauces, and no MSG. Huge portions, great eggrolls(with peanut butter), really good food.
They were sometimes very rude at the restaurant itself. Not letting people come in if they were closing in 30-45 mins, etc. I think they had a thriving delivery business, but wonder if their manner towards people in the restaurant played any part in their closing, or if it was just the economy.
