Herman has transitioned to helping a friend manage his clothing store, A Little Bit of Naples, in Portsmouth, N.H. He expressed his appreciation to customers and the Newburyport community for their support.
“We’d like to thank all of our customers and our friends for their support and loyalty over the years,” he said. “They will be missed. Being cut off from hundreds of people that you say ‘hello’ to every week, and all of the sudden you never see them?... It’s definitely a loss for me. There’s not a word to describe it.”
