Stores close in Westport all the time. It’s sad, but it’s also part of the retail life of this — or any — town. If “06880″ covered every store closing, there would be no room for entitled drivers or the latest tree murder.
The closing of Love & Co., however, deserves mention. There’s something special — and especially sad — about the end of the home furnishings and gifts shop at 74 Church Lane (next to Sconset Square).
The owner — Lisa — is very sick. At the same time, she must move all her merchandise out by July 1. That’s when a new tenant arrives.
It’s slow going — and the less Lisa has to move, the better.
A friend and customer asked if “06880″ could spread the word. She wants Westporters to know that for a few days, they have a chance to pick up some great items.
And in the process, do something nice for an ailing merchant.
(Love and Co. is open 10 a.m.-5 p.m., every day through June 30. Items are 50% off — and more.)
