After more than 50 years in business.
Richmond BizSense reports that the shop at 5601 Patterson Avenue will close this Saturday.
Owner Cynthia Coldwell said the decision to close was made after co-owner Sara Jane Leggett died of cancer in December 2013. Leggett was 66.
“This business was a labor of love for both of us,” Coldwell said. “It required the combined talents of both of us.”
Kelley’s sells gifts for various holidays and occasions. Its pre-lit Christmas trees, for example, sell for $500 to $700.
Coldwell is discounting much of her inventory as she winds down her business. What isn’t sold will be auctioned off online.
