Steve and Shelly Spivey opened Dilligaff’s in Stonington a little more than three years ago.
They catered mostly to local fishermen and their families. But with fishermen receiving less and less for their catches, there’s been less spent at the store.
This week the Spiveys closed their store and filed for bankruptcy.
The folks at Dilligaff’s say they plan to donate what they didn’t sell to a local food bank.
The Spiveys say that, if given the chance, they’d like to have another store some day.
