Speaking of coffee, I went to Bear Claw Coffee this morning and noticed that the Chelsea Dollar Store on Old US-12 is having a closeout sale. I'm sad to see them going out of business. I always bought our balloons and birthday party supplies from their store, even though the other dollar store (on Main St.) is closer to my house, because I wanted to try and support the underdog. The Main St. store is also a nice store, and they certainly have the location advantage.
The Chelsea Dollar Store always had a great selection and a very friendly staff, and I'm sorry that my twice a year balloon purchases probably didn't help very much. Best of luck to the owners in whatever they choose to pursue in the future.
