Daly’s Pen Shop

End of an Era

From jsonline: http://www.jsonline.com/story/money/business/retail/2017/07/17/dalys-pen-shop-close-its-doors/477625001/

Unfortunately not all business models are survivable (even those founded in 1924). Daly’s Pen Shop in Wauwatosa, Wi has come to an end….three or fewer customers per day is just not enough to cover overhead.

The key part of the story is that a market for fountain pens does exist….just in a different form via the internet. In the case of Daly’s Pen Shop being able to adapt was the way to carry on the business.
