Closings :: Rainy Faye Bookstore (CT)
Rainy Faye Bookstore in Bridgeport, CT has announced it will be closing August 1. Owner Georgia Day cites a number of contributing factors, including lack of support for small/independent businesses in the area as well as "the Great Recession." As journalist Keila Torres Ocasio comments in her article on the closing: "I've written it here before. Downtown businesses can't succeed without help from residents. They also can't succeed without support from the city they are located in. Day didn't feel like she had that kind of support."
