Uptown, 1204 Main Street: Summer 2020   2 comments

Posted at 11:32 pm in closing

Uptown gifts was the follow-on operation in this storefront to the venerable Capitol Newsstand where I made many finds back in the pre-internet age.

I had thought they set up shop in 2011, but based on this ColaDaily story, they must have moved in very shortly after Capitol closed. I never had the occasion to visit this store, but I did like the cityscape logo.

According to the linked story, they first shut down due to the COVID-19 mess, and then decided to just move on.

This makes two vacancies on the east side of this block, as there is still no action in the Persona location.

  1. I went in there several times. It had a very nice selection of gifts, most of a local nature, and a very friendly staff. They also did book signings for local authors. Their specialty was making custom gift baskets. I really hate to see them go
