End Of An Era In Chestertown

Bramble’s clothing store is shutting down after 28 years as an anchor business on High Street. Bramble says the economy certainly had an effect on his decision to close, but he also cited many factors that are changing retail sales, like the Internet and catalogues. Bramble turns 62 this month, and he says his age also was a factor. Bramble is going across the bridge to work as a salesman at Ramsey’s GMC and Pontiac dealership.
