Wait... Kent Kawi is closed?

Next thing you know, RMC will close too!

sad to see a long term shop close the doors, my very first new dirt bike came from them some 30 years ago.

I also forgot to mention that Pam Am is no longer flying and that Studebaker has not made a car in the past few years.

Too bad to see a small business go down, all too common now days. I very much doubt Hinshaws is next, I wouldn't be surprised if they were more the 'reason.' Nothing against Hinshaws at all.

I also realized that I have not seen a Chubby & Tubby or even a Pan N Save store for awhile. Where did they go?
