More changes while I was at Tanglewood (it was only six days, honest!): Swarthmore Music has closed its shop in the ville, moving to 35 E. Baltimore Pike in Springfield. And Swarthmore Cycles is gone, with nothing in the storefront but an eviction notice. Did some sort of plague that only attacks things named "Swarthmore" strike? The apartment building next to mine (SwatApts) is still there... and so (I think) is the College...

I'll miss Swat Music, I bought both of my guitars there. I did know they had another location. It sounds like the double overhead got to be not worth it and they consolidated.

They closed the second half of the place for some months before quitting the location altogether, so it wasn't just the double occupancy. The cheese shop and the bookstore and the Village Restaurant closed, too. I suspect that at renewal time, the rents were getting raised overmuch while business was down due to the economy.
