Closing store possible The owner of Halpern's, 137 E. Main St., today said the womens clothing store may be closed. "I'm not ready to make any announcements," the owner, Al Halpern, said. "We are considering it but we have not decided anything." Decision probably will be made in the next few days, he said. Reportedly, Halpern and the operator of another downtown clothing store during the past few days have been investigating procedures for going out of business. The store will be closed early next week, according to reports, to prepare for the "biggest sale ever."
