New Park Street Store Offers Variety of Gifts, Clothes, Home Decor

ADAMS, Mass. — Downtown Adams has a new member of the business community: Guy Cariddi's Adams Outlets.

Cariddi owned and operated Cariddi Auto in North Adams from 1982 until June of this year. He sold it to Hampshire Towing and, in order to stay busy during his retirement, opened a retail store in the heart of the Mother Town.

Cariddi said he is glad to be part of the business community. "We're just kind of excited to be in downtown Adams," he said.

The store itself carries a variety of items. "A lot of our stuff is one of a kind," he said.

For instance, Adams Outlets carries greeting cards, gift wrap, collectibles, jewelry, clothing, toys, and house decorations, among other things. Many of the items are priced at up to 50 percent off what they would be in a regular store.

Cariddi buys products from close-out sales, liquidations, and in bulk from clearance racks at other stores. This allows him to sell his items at outlet prices. Cariddi hopes that his store will generate interest for neighboring businesses, which in turn will do the same for his store.

Adams Outlets will hold seasonal sales of various items, including clothing. During the fall, for instance, he plans to bring in outerwear like raincoats and hooded sweat shirts.

The store is open Tuesday though Friday, 9 until 5, and Saturday from 9 until 4.
