Waitsfield, VT-based The Store announced it is up for sale. Second-generation owner, Kathy Rose, is “ready to move on,” she told local news outlet WCAX.com.
Opened in 1965 by Rose’s mother, The Store has a mix of distinctive kitchenware, gourmet gifts and decorative accessories, and also hosts a variety of cooking classes.
“I am going to miss the people that I work with. I am really going to miss the buying trips. I loved to go on the buying trips and see what’s new and all the new gadgets and I think we want the right person that will love it just as much as we all did,” she told the media outlet.
Rose is hoping to find a buyer by summer, but noted that it is still business as usual.
