Main Street yarn shop closing in February

After being in business since Nov. 2012, That Yarn Shop in River Falls, 104 N Main St., will be closing its doors on Friday, Feb. 28.

Store owner Emily Higgins said, in an email to customers, “We've run all the numbers every which way and even did the best case scenario with a space we found with cheaper overhead. Unfortunately, the best case scenario still didn't make any financial sense. I love this place and will miss it greatly, especially all of you who have helped me make this endeavor possible. I cannot thank all of you enough!”

The email also stated that classes will continue as scheduled and all gift certificates will be honored thru Feb. 28. There will be a progressive liquidation sale on yarn, needles, notions, fabric, buttons, patterns, and books.

Call That Yarn Shop in River Falls at 715-425-6122, for more information.
