In a move sure to sadden music and garden merchandise fans alike, the iconic Fountains of Wayne closed this spring. Located in Wayne, New Jersey, Fountains of Wayne had been selling outdoor items since the 1960s. The store closed in March and underwent an inventory liquidation in April.

The store attained a new level of fame when a power pop band from the region adopted its name. Fountains of Wayne, the band, has had a celebrated career including the pop hit "Stacy's Mom." The store also appeared in "The Sopranos."
