My mom is closing her store over in Bridgeport after being in business for about 20 years. As much as she has to put up with me, the least I could do is reproduce the ad that will run in the Bridgeport Index this week. (She doesn't know I'm doing this - yet.)
And the closing is kind of bittersweet. That retail space was previously occupied by Green's Dry Goods which was owned by my dad and, before him, his father. I remember selling shoes, jeans, and underwear in there as a teenager.
(And if you think I'll allow one negative comment, you're crazy!)
