Anyone know what's up?
I walked by today and it was all gated and closed up. Mail sitting. No notice in the window.
:confused:

Hmmm. I know that it was run by a couple, M/F but not married, and it was at least initially financed by the family/parents of one. That couple broke up in the last year and one bought the other out, or was to. Maybe that arrangement did not work out.

Didn't they win the lottery or something, that helped fund it?

I am not sure about that. Possible. They were a very cute couple at least in the 90's when I knew them.

Didn't one of the owners drive a massive black Ford or Chevy pickup with 3 foot wide tires?

I wouldn't have necessarily called that thing hot, but it definitely drew everyone's attention.

Walked by today and they are open, running a bankruptcy sale. Everything 30% to 80% off.
I didn't have time to stop in to ask how long they are open. I might get back downtown later though.

Heard a rumour of a bad break-up and one of them purposefully running it into the ground out of spite.

eewww. If true that's really sad and small-minded.
I know my son was really disappointed to hear it's gone. He bought all his stuff there.

^ You'd think the guy that runs this forum would at least read back three posts before he blurts out redundant rubbish. ;)

Yeah yeah, but now it's just scraps. A week back you could pick up clothing and shoes in your size, etc.

Hmmm..Maybe there's a market niche for an enterprising entrepreneur...
