POTSDAM – A business venture on Market Street that started just a year ago is closing.
Go Mascots!, a college and high school logo-wear store at 11 Market St., will close, according to Marc Compeau of Potsdam, co-owner of the business with Chuck Lamon, who also owns Victory Promotions stores in Watertown, Canton and Cortland.
“It was always intended to be something that we gave a shot at,” said Compeau, who owns the building and who had a similar shop in the same location called College Corner. That store and Go Mascots! sold apparel and other items with local high school and college logos on them.
Compeau says the store was difficult for him, a member of Clarkson University’s business school faculty, and Lamon to run on a part-time basis.
Compeau says he already has “lots of interest in the space from potential tenants.”
