Bye-Bye Rugged Bear

Much to my dismay, I’ve learned that one of our favorite stores, Rugged Bear, is going out of business. Bummer. We’re not massive consumers, but when you have young kids, there is a constant need to buy clothes as they grow, especially up here as the seasons change. Besides having cool stuff, Rugged Bear had these amazing sales where they would unload the unsold merchandise to make way for the new stuff. This, I learned, was part of the problem, because the store just wasn’t making enough money.

Now they’re leaving. I was told that another kid’s clothing store will replace it, but we’ll see how that goes. Rugged Bear was such an icon in this area, it’s hard to imagine what will takes it’s place, but we’ll see.

Until then, thanks for reading, and thanks to cde010 for the pic.
