The hot summer months are always a lean time for businesses on the square. This summer, we’ve had a couple of casualties. For the record, I don’t know the reasons behind the store closings. Stores on the square sometimes close for personal, family or health reasons. I wish the owners all the best and health and happiness in their future endeavors.
I didn’t see signs up this weekend, but that doesn’t always mean anything. At any rate, I saw them tonight on my way home. Local Color is closing. You’ll have to hurry if you want to catch the sale because it ends August 31st.
Patsy’s is already closed. Patsy’s was open for three years and will be missed.
On a positive note, I heard the sound of construction coming from inside the future home of Shelby-Marilee & Company (across the street from Gigi’s Cafe & Bakery). They are moving from their location on Tennessee Street to this one on Louisiana Street.
Until next time,
