We kept BeadsWest fully stocked in to March so didn't have to worry about our inventory getting "thin."
Then we began winding down in March, 2014.
Several customers have asked about moving to a new location.
Well, we did identify another available property that I think would be a very successful location (it even has better parking!).
If someone else wanted to buy BeadsWest, I would recommend they move to the location we found.
For me, however, it's time to retire.
We closed our Rhode Island store in 2010 (Beads of Providence) after 20 years serving that community.
It was just too hard for me to own a store that far away from White Plains, and closing it gave me
more time (and energy) to devote to BeadsWest.
So while it is sad to say goodbye to Beads of Westchester, for me it is the right thing to do at this time.
