village stationary closed



























this side of main street in farmingdale has had some bad luck with store closings lately. I'm hoping a little eatery like an old fashioned luncheonette or even a new stationary will fill this vacancy quickly.

It's a shame about the closings but an old fashioned luncheonette sounds very nice.

Farmingdale seems like a great place.

This tickles me! If the store sold writing paper and such, it should be Stationery. But if it was "stationary" it didn't stay put; it up and went away. Hmm. :) Do keep us posted on the future of this cute little shop!

ah, I have to wonder how many of us write with our hands these days. Sometimes I do it to de-stress and half the stress I feel is from how foreign the pen feels. It's sad.

I hope the next shop does better.

Agree with Cheryl....I don't know why people don't verify what they want on signs! On the other hand, maybe they thought the shop would stay stationary.

Hoping for you that something missing on this street will open...

Like everything else .. small mom and pop shops are being squeezed out by the chains .. Papyrus is the card store chain here and its sort of disappointing not to have anywhere else to shop for cards, wrapping paper and other 'stuff' like that ..

same thing is happening here in NJ
hope you get something great to replace the stationary shop

Hi Lily! Nice to hear from you again...I just haven't had time to get to everybody that I would like to...I'm gonna have to cut back on some blogs, I think!

It really wasn't a stationary store, was it? Too bad. So many small shops have had to close over the past couple of years.

Re you question: No, it's not real! :-)

Shame when local businesses close, but how can a stationery store survive in this age of e-mail and texting?
