Top 10 stories from 2018: Longtime county businesses close up shop

Posted on January 7, 2019 |
By Addison Independent



0524-18.jpg

In 2018 county residents bid adieu to businesses they had patronized faithfully, in some cases for decades.

In May Andy Li announced he would close Middlebury’s Ben Franklin Store; it had been for sale for three years and its inventory and space had been downsized.

2018: A year in review

Posted on December 27, 2018 |
By Addison Independent
