The Shorewood Village Board on Monday paid homage to a venerable business that will be shutting its doors at the end of the month.
The board presented a proclamation to Carol Grossmeyer, president of the 82-year-old Harry W. Schwartz bookstore. Grossmeyer, a resident of Shorewood, opened a Schwartz store in the village in 1993.
The village in its proclamation praised Grossmeyer and other Schwartz staffers for contributing to the intellectual needs of residents through such means as hosting author visits and supporting the Shorewood School District by assisting teachers, displaying student art and participating in fundraising efforts.
