Rumourstoke rides again

Work 'n' Play owner Lawrence Rebalkin loves a good gamble and holding a Clothing Out Sale seemed like a good way to get rid of a lot of old stock. But one thing he wasn't betting on was a rumour that his store was closing and, just to quote another embellishment of the truth, moving to a new location near the Forum. He may be holding a pair of bags in this photo, taken Saturday, but check that smile. The bags are more than likely for all the cash he hopes to make through his sale — and not for moving to a spot near the Forum (The Forum? Who'd open a shop down there?). David F. Rooney photo
