I will miss them.  I enjoy shopping at smaller businesses when possible and their selection was eclectic, and it was great having them in the neighborhood.    I am glad that it seems this is truly a retirement choice and not related to rising rents or the pandemic.

However mostly when an owner retires he/she tries to sell the business. And the business continues under new ownership while the owner pockets the goodwill $ for his/her retirement.

This is not the case here. Obviously the owner wasn't able to sell the business. Possibly because in an online selling environment, plus the move to digital art... a retail business like that is no longer profitable.
