Some of the things we're told are sure things in life are death and taxes. Maybe the longevity of McDonald's is too. That's why so many Quad Citians were caught off guard when McDonald's shuttered their State Street location in Bettendorf at close of business on Saturday night.

A letter posted on the door of the restaurant announced the closure, and directed patrons to the two other Bettendorf locations.

No reason for the closure was given.

Though many McDonald's locations have been closed for renovations lately, the line that read "thank you for your patronage since 1982" on the State Street locations letter leads us to believe this is a 'for good' closure.

The remaining McDonald's in Bettendorf are at 852 Middle Road in front of Schnuck's, and at 2185 53rd Avenue at the corner of 18th Street.
