From an outsider's perspective, railroads gain or lose customers all the time. Local coal companies are long gone. Some customers relocate - like General Motors. Others consolidate and eliminate manufacturing and cease to exist - like the Pullman Company or St. Louis Car Company.
It is particularly sad when a going concern, like the Rexall Company, attempts to refocus their goal, miss, and then are eliminated and extinguished as a result of bad management and executive made mishaps. On a sad note and from a historical perspective, the company archives and corporate records of these vanished companies often disappear - long gone are archives from Scullin Steel, Lemp Brewing Company, Scruggs, Vandervoort & Barney, Moon Motor Car Company, and now Rexall can be added to the list.
