A couple blocks away from where Bucks Good Burger and BBQ recently closed their doors, the owners at The Little Red Bird Gift Boutique have announced they will be closing too.

Patti Lovelace, who owns the store with her husband, Rob, said they were hoping to find someone to take over the store but it just did not happen. The store, which opened in the spring of 2017, featured products made by local vendors and they have already been made aware of the decision, Patti said.

Their final day will be December 22nd and everything remaining in the store is 30% off or more until then.

Across the street, the windows at Rockwood Realty‘s Main Street office windows have been covered with paper causing some people to believe they had closed their doors. But, that is not the case according to company officials. They have relocated their offices to the corner of 4th Avenue and Alder Street, in a building the company recently purchased and remodeled.

The new Rockwood Realty offices are located at 2084 Alder Street.

According to a person in-the-know, the former Rockwood Realty location at 2200 Main Street will soon be occupied by a business that is in the process of relocating to the space but it was too soon to make an announcement. “It will be a good addition to downtown,” the person said.

AllisonAmy Jewelry, located at 5675 3rd Avenue, has a sign in the window notifying customers the store’s last day will be December 24th. The store’s inventory has also been available online for purchase. While the storefront is closing, the owner, Allison, says she will return to vending in a few more craft fairs while maintaining an online presence. The location opened in 2012 after selling handmade jewelry at craft fairs and consignment shops for several years.

Allison encourages shoppers to stop by and pick up a few stocking stuffers while the store is open. “I love what I do and I think many people might be surprised at my selection and competitive prices,” she said.

Progress continues towards a future opening of Fringe Brewing at 3rd Avenue and Alder Street. According to company officials, equipment that will make up the brewhouse portion of their brewing operation recently arrived and is being installed. No date has been given for when the owners expect to be open.
