The fate of Astro Turf at 290 Smith Street has been in limbo for a very long time. One day, the store's doors closed and never opened for business again, though it was fully stocked with wonderfully kitschy 1950's and 60's decorative items. Over time, a coat of dust settled on everything in the store.
Then in October of this year, construction paper was taped to the storefront's windows and, upon inquiry, I was told that Astro Turf would soon re-open after a spruce up.
Well, that does no longer seem to be the case, judging by the For Lease sign that just appeared in its windows.
Don't you want to know what happened to all the cool merchandise in the store? I do...
