The Classy Kitchen, an upscale housewares consignment store housed inside a quaint house-turned-store at 7118 N. 7th St., will close its doors on Saturday, June 16.

North Central residents Sandy and Butch Grunow, both third-generation Phoenicians, took over the store from Linda Klein and Terri Mainwaring just short of two years ago.

“Children and grandchildren tug at your heart, letting you realize what is important, and Butch and I have decided it is time for us to fully retire,” Sandy explains.

Shoppers will be able to find special deals in advance of the closing. Items still available in the store will be discounted by the following: items dated over 1 month, 20 percent off; over 2 months, 30 percent off; over three months, 50 percent off; and over four months, 65 percent off. Exception items such as Waterford crystal and AllClad cookware will be discounted at 30 percent if dated over two months.

In addition, as the closing date approaches, some store fixtures will be sold off as well. See in store for details.
