A French-inspired home and gifts store in Cherrydale is set to close soon.
La Maison, which opened at 3510 Lee Highway in 2013, will close once owner Jeeun Friel sells the business.
The store sells “everything from candles, totes, jewelry, local art, handmade furniture, pins, just a lot of unique one-of-a-kind things,” Friel said. “That’s what’s kept us interesting for the last three years.”
Friel added that her reason for closing the store is to spend more time with her kids, specifically her youngest son.
“I opened the shop originally because, at the time, my firstborn was three years old and entering preschool so I had a lot of time on my hands and it was kind of a hobby,” she said. “It’s bittersweet because I really created this little place from scratch but I’m happy being home with my baby.”
Friel said the shop could close as early September, as long as someone buys it by then.
“I was hoping by September, but it could be longer,” Friel said. “We don’t have a definite date right now. I still have to run the shop and we’re still running on a daily basis until we figure out what’s going to happen.”
The store will hold sales throughout the rest of the summer to sell off the remaining merchandise, Friel said. At the moment, everything in the store is half off.
