Rosy article in the Pacific Grove Hometown Bulletin says there’s just one empty storefront on Lighthouse ave:

What? I counted four three empty businesses this morning:

The Hart Mansion – former restaurant (take this off the list since it’s a private residence for now)Hart Mansion

The Wachovia Bank – good location for a restaurant with outdoor tables.Wachovia

Primo – another former restaurantprimo for sale

Hallmark – vacant for about 50 years it seems.
Hallmark 2010

Conclusion, I’m thankful for the free paper that is mailed to my home. I use it for a kitty litter pan liner.

What a great example of recycling. These businesses would be awarded something for their ‘green’ efforts, if they were not shut down.

First saw the signs at Hallmark.

I don’t know anyone that ever spent money at Wooden Nickel. It looked like another store full of phony country charm. Speaking of phony charm, the charm’s the same, but the name is new over at Country Attic, now to be known as Nancy’s Attic.

After a 34-year run, Pacific Grove’s Hallmark store is closing its doors.

Customers lined up throughout the day to take advantage of a closing sale which started Thursday morning. Most items in the shop, including greeting cards and gifts, were marked down 20 percent.

The shop’s last scheduled day of business will be Sept. 15.

Are those Day-glo posters still available? Seems they are getting passed around a lot . .
