Only Yesterday, best known for their Ocean City Boardwalk location which closed in 2018,  is having what they are calling a "demolition sale" Saturday, at their store at 11th and Asbury, to empty out store fixtures and odds and ends before closing for good.

In late September, the store broke the news on Facebook about their closing.

Soooooo sorry but our 1137 Asbury store is closing forever!!!!!! Due to the virus and personal health factors we are unable to continue . We will dearly miss our loyal customers and will cherish the memories !

Another Facebook post Wednesday gave more details about their final day in business this Saturday.
