What's it like to close a beloved local shop? There's not much written about the "death of a small business" but Sweets 'N' Treats had a story. Established in 1979, my store was a local community icon for 35 years and now it's down to the last few months. I've never "gone quietly" about what I stood for, and as an independent retailer there's much to let go of. #TheFinal90

I went by the shopping center a week or so ago late at night and had to stop and look. My store still sits empty.
Now there is another one closing too....
Paco's Paradise has been there for more than forty years.
It was one of the best times of my life. I just wish it had never lasted so long, because moving on is very painful. I've lost my place in this world.
