Chelsea Marketplace Closings
Uptown Antiques is gone, while the River Gallery refocuses
After twenty-five years in business, a May auction marked the closing of Marj Daniels' Uptown Antiques. Daniels could not be reached for comment, but Chelsea Area Chamber of Commerce executive director Bob Pierce says it's hard to lose a business that's "been so supportive of our community and chamber for so many years. I'm going to miss seeing Bob [Marj's husband, who died in 2012] at the summer festival sidewalk sales hawking the wares" from the store.
