The retail business isn't alone with the slew of closings that happened in 2017 and will continue to happen in 2018. Just in case you missed it, the iconic children's museum has closed its doors for good.

According to Shore New Today, The Jersey Shore Children's Museum, located in the Hamilton Mall, officially closed its doors on December 31st due to lack of funding.

The museum first opened in 1998 and was originally located on Fire Road in Egg Harbor Township before moving to the Shore Mall and eventually winding up at the Hamilton Mall.
