Good Morning! Such an interesting row of buildings. Always bittersweet when a business closes. Wishing you a nice day.
You'd have thought a Gift Shop might have held out till Christmas. Sad to see small businesses closing down everywhere.
Its the same everywhere. Small shops are pushed out of business in favor of the internet shops. A real pity for the people that will see, feel and fit first before deciding to buy.
I feel sad for the owners.
...victim of Amazon?
So sad to see all those little shops closing, the same happens here too.

Owning a gift shop or a small business is always taking a risk. Hope that it is not because of lack of customers. I agree with Mildred about the street; looks like there are other more successful shops?
I hate to see the neighbourhood businesses close! Sad day!
Hi Bill.Pity that more and more stores will close.Groettie from Patricia.
The end of an era. Interesting to see benches on the sidewalk so people can stop.
looks like the benches are outside a pub!
That's a shame. Perhaps a new owner will open up again in the spring to catch the tourist season.
Sad but seems to be the fate of so many small businesses these days Bill ✨
Oh dear, that's too bad. I hate to see small shops closing.
Well, that's sad. I'd guess the shop has been there for some time, too. Do you know why it's closing down?
Always a shame to see a local business close its doors. Hopefully something new opens!
Sad when such a shop closes up.
It's so sad when family owned businesses close down.
So sad when this happens.I do like your photographs though, especially the second one.All the best Jan
Too bad they are closing! It is hard for stores these days!

Love the colours captured!
Not an easy business to survive in, especially in smaller towns where people can turn to the internet.
Aww ... it looks like it was a nice place too. So much competition from the Internet these days, it is a wonder that any board and brick business, big or small, can manage to stay alive.
Always sad to see a small business close. Especially this time of year. Maybe the owners were retiring. Love that view down the street.
