After capturing yesterday’s image from the top of the Jeremiah Lee Mansion, I walked towards my car and passed the shops lining Washington Street.  As I headed past Candy Pop Sweet Shoppe, I stopped in my tracks at the signage indicating they had permanently closed.  A check on their Facebook page shows the shop is relocating to the Berkshires.

This is as good a reminder as any of the importance of ‘Keeping it Local’ when you are in need of candy, books, toys, clothing, furniture, or any of the many other products and services offered right here in town.  The Chamber Spring Fling is taking place tomorrow with great events at many stores around town – please stop in and show your support for our local economy.
