BANGOR, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- This Saturday is Shop Small Business Saturday, a day when everyone is encouraged to support their locally owned businesses. But for one business, it's the last Shop Small Saturday it will ever have.
After 42 years in business in Maine, including 15 in Bangor, the clothing shop Best Bib & Tucker on Main Street will be closing its doors for good in December. Best Bib & Tucker is the only independently owned men's and women's clothing store north of Portland. The owners, couple Cynthia and Tom Cavanaugh, said they love their business, but it's time for them to retire, and they'll miss all their customers.
"The biggest thing I think we both will miss is just the interaction with people, always, always people. That's what makes a business grow, that's what makes it survive," said Tom.
