Nice story by Stan Diel on the closing of landmark store in Ensley. If you ever wanted a Sunday nice hat, this was the place to go. Hurry while supplies last.

A combination of a deep, lingering recession and a deteriorating neighborhood has become too much to overcome, said Harry Weinberg, who married into the Cotton family and runs the store with his wife Rhonda, a granddaughter of the founders.
