      Erie Street Market will lose another of its dwindling businesses by the end of the year"City officials have decided to shut down Superior Antique Mall on Dec. 31.

      Vendors received letters from Mayor Mike Bell last week informing them to pack up and leave before the New Year.

      City spokesperson Jen Sorgenfrei said operating costs for the store exceeded revenue and it didn TMt make sense to keep it open. It was a business decision, she said.

      The future of Erie Street Market will be weighed by officials in the coming weeks.

      Deputy Mayor Tom Crothers told WUPW that all city property is for sale, if the price is right.
