Three Marketplace Closings
Tato says business at his own store--one of the last independent pharmacies in town--is "great, but you never know. You thank God every day you're open."
A sign posted on the door of Damon's Grill on Boardwalk reads: "Unfortunately, after failed lease negotiations, we have closed our business." It thanked customers for thirteen years of business and invited them to direct questions or comments to email@example.com. But it didn't promise it would answer them; a March 1 email was unanswered at press time.
AnnArbor.com caught the sudden folding as it was happening and reported that manager Richard Mowara acted quickly to help his employees find jobs in other area restaurants. Damon's is a shrinking chain specializing in ribs. This franchise and the property on which it sits are involved in foreclosure litigation.
