You've seen the going out of business signs, and it's true.  One of downtown Ellsworth's most beloved stores is yes indeed closing its doors for good!

After doing business on Main Street in Ellsworth for 33 years, The Grasshopper Shop is closing.

The Grasshopper Shop took over the former WIlley's location back in 1982.  It is currently owned by Elizabeth McMillan, who purchased the property from Ken Schweikert in May of 2012.

Grasshopper Shops not owned by McMillan in Searsport, Rockland and at Bangor International Airport will continue business as usual.

Currently, there is a "20% going out of business" sign on the front window of the Ellsworth location.
