In case you were planning a power-pop road trip out east that included a stop at Fountains Of Wayne, the Wayne, N.J., outdoor shop that inspired the name of Adam Schlesinger’s beloved band, you may want to reroute: Thanks to a difficult Christmas season last year, the store—which had been run by the same family for more than 40 years—closed in March and was subsequently liquidated.
