Chocolate Peacock is closing its store at 2947 S. 108th St., but owner Chaley Chandler said the women's boutique will continue to operate an online store at www.chocolatepeacockboutique.com.
Chandler said the brick-and-mortar store, which offers women's clothing and accessories, will close Saturday at 5 p.m.
“Having the website and the store was like having two jobs,” Chandler said. “I have a 4-year-old and a 4-month-old at home, and I decided to dial it back and concentrate on the website.”
Chandler said she may offer temporary pop-up stores. Hours and locations will be announced on the company's Facebook page, website and by email.
The store's five part-time employees will continue to help with the website, she said, and store gift cards and store credits will be honored.

J.D. Byrider franchise for Omaha
J.D. Byrider, a used car and finance company, will open its first Nebraska franchise at 5500 L St. on Monday.
The dealership will offer vehicles and financing geared toward people “who have damaged or no credit,” co-owner Russ Larson said. “We're not for everybody.”
The Omaha location will be the seventh franchise for Larson and Jeff Lee. They own four J.D. Byrider franchises in Iowa – Davenport, Cedar Rapids, Burlington and Des Moines – and one franchise each in Columbia, Mo., and Huntsville, Ala.
The 20,000-square-foot dealership, the former Lithia Chrysler showroom, will include a customer service center and seven service bays, and will employ 20 to 25 workers. Larson said the dealership should have 25 to 30 cars available for the opening.
