Janet Owens has operated the Millrace Bookstore in Farmington for forty years. The bookstore occupies a few rooms in a building on the Farmington River. The building's main tenant has been the Gristmill Restaurant, which closed two weeks ago to move to a new facility. With the loss of restaurant patrons, the bookstore's foot traffic has dried up, so Janet decided it is time to retire. Miss Porter's School will take over the building. Today is the last day . . . local book lovers can stop over to say good-bye at a celebration hosted by Miss Porter's.
Enjoy your retirement, Janet.
