Kids Town Closes 

Business

After 22 years in business, Kids Town is taking a permanent time-out. Right after Christmas, the local children's department store announced it would cease operation, saying it was no longer able to compete with online retailers and large chain stores. The current closeout sale has no official end date. Kids Town carried merchandise for children of all ages, including furniture, clothing, toys, books, strollers and other family gear. The business also conducted a three-day spring swap that drew hundreds of shoppers looking to buy and sell used kids stuff. Wonder where those same folks were buying merchandise the rest of the year? Yes, it matters.

Kids Town: All items are 30 percent off during the store's closing sale, 10 Farrell Street, South Burlington. Info, 865-6870, kidstown.com.
