Jim Bono, owner of the Marco Wine Seller since 2001, stands surrounded by inventory in his North Collier Boulevard shop.  “I survived the hurricane, the building got hit twice by two different cars and the building got struck by lightening.  I just found out last week the landlord needed the space, so that’s why I’m closing. Plus, the economy had a big impact on my business.  I’ll miss the people the most, and it’s family.  Me and my family are the only ones who every worked here,” Bono said.
