Bass Factory Outlet has platered their store with signs reading “store closing” and slashing prices. The end of these store on Market Street is causing fear for some local boutiques.
“I’m a little worried that it might not bring as many people to the street because those are two big stores and they are on the corners and they bring a lot of people to the street,” said Sarah Files, owner of Pip’s Boutique. “We kind of nicknamed this street the Garment Block because we have a lot of retail stores, so two big ones missing I think its gonna hurt us.”
