We’ve never been big frequenters of Marty’s Shoes…but we did notice the signage pop up last week in Garwood.

As we lazily wondered if it was Garwood only, we have our answer.

Although I’m a business guy I’m not going to mourn Marty’s. Some will make it. Some won’t. (Hopefully my business remains in the “make it” category.) Marty’s wasn’t a national treasure. Too bad for the employees, but many should be able to find jobs without leaving the state.

But is it me or is South Ave in Garwood starting to look pretty empty?
