Hampdenfest, the late-summer festival bringing toilet bowl races and punk and indie rock to the heart of Hampden, has been canceled due to coronavirus, organizers announced last night.
Michal Makarovich was one of the last merchants in Baltimore who regularly put elaborate displays in the front window of his store, but now he says those days are over.
Makarovich and associate Adrian Monaco created the final window display this week to signal that their business, Hampden Junque, is closing its physical storefront permanently and becoming an online shop.
The window contains a figure of Pee-wee Herman, the fictional character, all by himself, with none of the quirky merchandise from the store that usually surrounds him.
Milk & Ice Vintage and Sturgis Antiques, two specialty stores that shared a space on The Avenue in Hampden, announced they will be closing their physical storefront and shift to online business and by-appointment studio visits.
As Gov. Larry Hogan increases the types of Maryland businesses ordered to close amid concerns over COVID-19, many bars, restaurants and other establishments have offered carryout and delivery options to their customers. But eateries are not the only ones trying to navigate doing business during the pandemic.
A group of Hampden merchants, including a yarn store, florist’s shop and others, will begin same-day home delivery of their items March 23.
