Just as the local beaches are beginning to thaw, with summer almost upon us, Diane’s Beachwear, a 2nd Street shopping staple for nearly half a century, has closed.
The reason behind the closure was not clear.
It’s also unclear if the remaining stores will close. The stores either have disconnected phones or calls went unanswered, and their websites all say “Sorry we missed you. Have a safe and healthy summer.”
“They just left, I never heard a word from them,” said Dede Rossi, executive director of the Belmont Shore Business a**ociation.
