From an email:
“It is with great sadness that we announce that Vastu will be closing soon.
It has been a wonderful 11 1/2 years and we are very sorry to see it end. We simply couldn’t absorb the financial burden caused by increased costs and lowered revenue during last year’s short change in ownership.
During our time on 14th St, we have taken great pride and delight in being invited into your homes and lives, asked to help make them a little more comfortable and stylish, and we cherish the friendships we’ve made along the way. It has been an adventure watching the neighborhood go from a retail wasteland where we needed to bring lunch if we wanted to eat that day to one where there are seemingly endless options for all-day drunken brunches.
Our closing isn’t immediate and we will of course be delivering orders to those of you who still have them outstanding.
If you have been considering a new order, please contact us immediately to discuss this, as we will be able to help you in the short term and we would appreciate the support.
We will also be selling all of our current showroom inventory effectively immediately. We are not planning on opening another location, so we will be discounting everything substantially to clear out all of our stock. We still have a store full of wonderful items that we’d love to see go to good homes, like shelter puppies but without the housetraining and shoe-chewing… Our operating hours will be changing to Wed – Sat, 11-7, and Sun 12-5. If you would like to schedule an appointment during our closeout sale, please contact Craig at the store.
Again, thank you for your support, business, and friendship during our time in the Mid-city neighborhood.
We are very grateful.”
