Recently there was an unpleasant buzz here in Elmira that Cappy's would soon close. Regular readers see lots of references to it as the goto store for almost any gift-giving, but especially spur-of-the-moment. It is a mandatory stop for anyone visiting our downtown shopping areas.
A visit to this site will tell it all. Lots of photos, too.
But Cappy's is here to stay. A piece in Sunday's Star-Gazette reassured us Cappy's patrons that all is well. Joe had a spot of bad health, but he's game for the long term.
Whew! That was a close call for someone like me. I'd really miss the place, come Father's or Mother's Day.
