Salem store closing

For years I did 90 percent of my Christmas shopping downtown Salem. They had some of the most quaint shops, pleasant people, and unique gifts. Unfortunately, most people went to the "big name stores" and the Mom and Pop stores were forced out of business. Now, I give money or gift cards. Very un-unique? Yes! I really miss those shops!
