Collected Stories Bookstore in downtown Milford has closed.

The unique bookstore has been a downtown staple for about nine years, located on Daniel Street.

Owned by Milford resident Susan Shaw, the shop sold used and new books, including rare and first editions. Over the years, the shop hosted many book signings and events.

The store opened in 2006, taking the place of The Village Wench, which was also a used-book store.
