“A local blogger from Gloucester, MA, has a whole two-part explainer up covering the entire family drama- and scandal-filled backstory back to 1916, when the first store opened. It’s quite a tale, involving epic, decades-long lawsuits, paid-off witnesses, and lots of people going to jail. The whole saga is well worth a read…” – Consumerist, 7/22/14

  1. Good morning, Clam. I’m contacting you about the Middle Street Walk coming up December 13. I know that a lot of your readers have kids and that you sometimes post about children’s activities. If I send you the schedule of events, would you consider mentioning the Middle Street Walk on the blog? They day will include craft activities, performances, photos with Santa, making S’mores, and lighting of the lobster trap tree. Please send me the appropriate email address for further information. Thanks very much.
