Keeping Tabs on Seasonal Shutterings

Is your favorite store or restaurant closing for the season? Add it to our running list!

Now that we’re on the other side of Columbus Day, many of the Island’s stores are shuttering for the season—and in some cases, unfortunately for good. Patch is compiling a running list of these closures—and we want your help. Do you know of a seasonal or permanent closure? Let us know in the comments and we’ll add it to our list! In a matter of just a few short weeks, this list will increase exponentially in length as the Island returns to slumber.

Please tell me only the Edgartown branch of Sweet E's Cupcakes is closing?! There's nothing like those nutella and cream cheese filled cupcakes!

In The Woods says that it is going out of business every single year, for as long as anyone can remember.

Should I create a poll to vote whether we think it will really happen?

"I LOVE MV" closed for the season but can continue to shop all year long via email, telephone or the Facebook store.
Vanessa Czarnecki October 12, 2011 at 07:21 PM
Sonja, I'm waiting on word from Ezra (the "E" in Sweet E's), but yes, it seems both locations are closing. He's apparently hoping to sell the business. Any takers?
Ezra Agnew October 12, 2011 at 07:38 PM
Or at least, the "Going out of business" sign is up every year.

Side Car Cafe - closed for season

Thank you for the update on Sweet E's, Vanessa. There were days this June when they had to close early because they were totally sold out-- I hope someone buys the business.
