Uptown, 1204 Main Street: Summer 2020 (Open Again)   3 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.




(Hat tip to commenter Justin)

UPDATE 8 October 2020 -- As reported in the comments and ColaDaily, Uptown is open again under new ownership.

  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
