Uptown Creston business to close its doors
One of Creston’s uptown businesses is closing its doors. Linda Hewitt, owner of Plentiful Harvest, said her store will officially close Dec. 21 after four years of operation in Creston.
She is currently holding a going-out-of-business sale whereby fabric, sewing notions, patterns, yarn, hooks, needles, threads and more are all 40 percent off.
“To be honest, we opened our store four years ago because Walmart quit selling fabric,” Hewitt said, “but this past year has been tough economically. This summer was horrific as far as sales for uptown businesses. People just aren’t buying. They are saving money.”
Hewitt said she and her staff will continue machine quilting from their homes, and she will now seek other employment.
Plentiful Harvest is located at 216 W. Montgomery St. in Creston.
