Within the last year, Julie at Bead Source in Covington Plaza announced a liquidation sale saying the store would be closing. And, she took it back, saying she thought she'd found a way to keep the bricks and mortar store in operation.
Today, I received an email announcement from her that the store is closing, this time for the last time on Dec. 14.
From the email:
"My fellow bead lovers and friends, it has been my pleasure to serve you over the last 17 years. It is with tears in my eyes that I am writing to let you know that I have to close my retail Bead Source store on December 14, 2011."
She has announced a liquidation sale and longer store hours of 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Friday and noon to 8 pm. Saturday and Sunday until the closing.
Julie assures her friends and customers she'll be around.
"Stay on the email list! I will still be active in the community with bead home parties, trunk shows, art shows, the internet and traveling classes which I would love for you to be a part of," she wrote.
