A sign out front of the business thanked customers for their loyal patronage.

Sadly, more and more businesses are suddenly closing their doors each and every day, after many years in business. In March we reported on the sale of The Country Deli in Stony Point after 37 years, and just last week we reported on the closing of Back to Earth Natural Foods in New City after 50 years, both Rockland County mainstays.

We also learned back in April that AJ Cafe in Wappingers was closing. The loss of a popular spot for wings over the past 10 years in Dutchess County surprised many. So there we have two Rockland County businesses and one in Dutchess County. What could be next?
