More changes for the neighborhood
Even though it underwent a major renovation a few years back, Cumberland Farms at the corner of L and 5th will most likely be closing soon. Word on the street – and confirmation from the relator – the building located at 628 East Fifth Street is under agreement with a closing coming up in October.
According to “someone in the know” – an employee at the convenience store told a customer that they would, in fact, be closing the store in a few weeks.
As to what will be replace the building, we have a feeling it will be a four story building with commercial on the bottom. Will Cumby’s open on the ground level? We’re guessing not but who’s to say!
No more quick trips for a half-gallon of milk or to play your numbers! And what will Chris do? Chris – a local neighbor – is often spotted sitting out front with dog treats and a bowl of water for his furry friends. He’ll sometimes even “dog-sit” while you run inside. Remember this heart-warming story between Chris and Paul the Doodle Pearce?
