Max's Art Supplies on Post Road East in Westport set to close
An old-fashioned art supply store in Westport will close its doors at the end of the month.
Max's Art Supplies on Post Road East has been a staple for local artists and illustrators for 59 years.
The rise of digital illustrating means frequent customers were fading away. "It's all computer, so they don’t need art materials. They [also] buy online," says owner Shirley Mellor.
