EUGENE, Ore. — After serving the Eugene community for more than 35 years, Fletcher’s for Children is closing it’s doors. The owners say their lease is ending and since the recession, it’s been difficult to keep their small business profitable.
At Fletcher’s you can find just about anything a baby or child might need, and when the store opened, that was very appealing to shoppers. But now, with more people turning to the Internet, the Fletchers say they just couldn’t compete.
“It’s been a privilege and an honor to share in the families that shop with us,” says Ron Fletcher, who co-owns the store with his wife Judie. “We’ll miss you. We’re sorry that we won’t be here for you. It’s hard.”
Starting Wednesday, April 23, the Fletchers say their entire stock will be on sale at their store on Valley River Way. Fletcher’s for Children will be fully closed before the end of June 2014.
