Greater Goods Closing on U St, NW

I still miss the fish/pet store…

Thanks to all who forwarded the email:

Greater Goods Closing – 25 to 50% Off Everything Sale Through February 27th!

Dear Friends,
After almost 4 years at U Street we have decided to close the retail store. This wasn’t an easy decision but we did not feel we could continue under the current circumstances. There were a variety of factors contributing to our closing but in the end we could not acquire funding to grow or expand. Over the last year we have juggled our budget but it was painfully obvious that we could not get the shelves restocked quickly enough.

This has been a great experience for me, though of course I wish it would have ended differently. I learned a lot about my family, friends, and myself. I experienced tragedies and the greatest joys while running this place. I got to know interesting people doing interesting things. If I could have done it differently I would have made it better, but I would not have changed my decision to open our doors.

Thanks to all you folks who shopped and talked to me about whetever came to mind.

PS – I’m keeping the online store open and anything that doesn’t sell out will go to the website. Furnishings will go as well.
