It's been such a tough year for business across our area, and yet again, another unfortunate reminder hit this week. We learned that one Princeton retailer is moving out today and another will be closing this weekend.

A user named Richard T. commented on the Princeton, NJ Community Group Facebook page that movers were seen today removing items from Brooks Brothers in Palmer Square.

We drove by the store, and unfortunately, we confirmed the news today.

In July, we reported that the century-old nationwide clothing store had filed for bankruptcy and that as part of that filing, many of its stores would be closing.

Meanwhile, according to the Princeton, NJ Community Group Facebook page, Bon Appetit in the Princeton Shopping Center will be closing for good this weekend.

Bon Appetit also has a cafe at Princeton Forrestal Village and at this time, there is no word on whether that location will also close for good this weekend.

Both closings are once again a reminder that local business needs our support now more than ever.
