Century Old Family Business Announces Closing
After more than a century in business, a family-owned Bucksport business is closing.Three generations of the Rosen family have run Rosen’s of Maine.Owner Richard Rosen tells us the store was designed to support the family while providing their children the means to get an education.He says those goals were accomplished through three generations.Today he talked about the toughest part of the decision to close. “I’ve grown up in the store when my brothers and I as kids. My parents, Larry and Lilian Rosen, they really built the business. We were always expected to be in the store growing up, sweep the floor, unpack freight, whatever it might be. So it’s the people.”Rosen’s has a closing sale going on now. The business will close for good when the goods are gone.
