Husband-and-wife team Liam Murtagh and Emily Spetrino-Murtagh tell me that they've just decided to close their whimsical candy and record shop, Sweets & Beats, at the end of the month.

Spetrino-Murtagh says that sales haven't been up to par in recent months, so they're liquidating their inventory this week and turning off the lights on January 31.
