I am late to blogging this, but it needs to be done. Our bookstore on Merrimack Street (a Barnes and Noble) has shut down. Their contract with UMass was not renewed.
What comes next? I have a couple of phone calls into the University.
In the mean time, I am concerned about what this means for our City's downtown. Henry's calls to City Life in the morning show that he too is concerned—notwithstanding his being unwilling to give George Anthes, Esq, credit for going to Mass at the Immaculate. Someone else suggested to me a couple of businesses are just hanging on through the Folk Festival. I sure hope that is not the case.
There is variety in Downtown Lowell. But, no Pottery Barn or Williams Sonoma. Alas.
