The Shadow Store
The mannequins have met their makers, the marquee bulbs have burned their last, the deals have all been dealt: Nickelman's is shuttered. But if you missed out on the shopping experience of someone's lifetime, thankfully, Sudbury's Poet Laureate, Kim Fahner, was there to suffer for you. You can read her full narrative account on her site, The Republic of Poetry.

The "Other" Record Man
Most folks don't know that Nickelman's Department Store had its own record label. Their bestselling artist, Burt Northburn, hasn't been heard from in over thirty years. But we've discovered a box of old cassettes, containing his nickel-selling album. You can listen to it at BrokeDownTown Sept. 30 and Oct. 1.
