Looking Back at Businesses Closed in 2012

Slate includes young restaurants, decades-old Morristown icons.

Morristown may be a hair or two under just three square miles, but there's a lot of commerce to be had. As with any densely-packed sardine can, many new faces find their way onto the scene—and many say "goodbye."

Here, we look back at the businesses that shuttered in 2012. If you know of any others we missed, let us know in the comments. And, of course, to read about the many businesses that opened the past year, click here.
