After 17 years of operation, the ‘All Wrapped Up‘ store in the Washington Mall is set to close at the end of next month.
A post made on their Facebook page this afternoon [Oct 12] said: “Hello all My Facebook Friends and Family. As many of you have noticed that I’ve been posting quotes about change these last few days. The reason for me doing this is because I have decided to make a change in my life.
“Doing retail in our present economy is very stressful especially when Bermuda has lost so many non-Bermudian workers who were also my customers. My health and sanity is most important as I make this change.
“So after 17 years of operation, All Wrapped Up will close for business by end of November 2012. I thank you all very much for your business, friendship, shoulder to cry on and your laughter. Change is good and I’m ready for it even though I don’t know what my future holds.”
Speaking to owner Peter Richold, he confirmed that one person — in addition to himself — will lose their full time job. He also confirmed that the end of next month they will be having a sale on their remaining goods which includes greeting cards, gift wrap, candles, paper and much more.
“It’s been a great 17 years,” said Mr Richold. “We had fantastic customers and I will really miss them.”
