Just got a "Going out of Business" sale post card from Pilgrim Furniture. An ordinary furniture store in Littleton, it's been in business there for ever, 30-40 years. A landmark. My wall-to-wall carpet came from them and it's been down for 30 years. Any how, they are doing the going out of business sale, and they probably mean it.
Either the owners are getting old and want to retire, or business is really bad, or both. We will miss them.
