Olde Towne is losing its fair trade shop.
Beans, Books & Bull, 2206 Franklin St., will close so its proprietors can focus on other aspects of their lives.
Brenda and Lowell Hennigs posted a message on the store’s Facebook page on Dec. 31 announcing the closing.
“At this point in our lives, we believe it is the best thing for us to do,” they wrote. “While it has been great fun and has become self sustaining, it does not afford us the freedom we desire to have. There are many life events on the schedule and we want to be able to participate in them fully!”
The store, which sells handmade cultural gifts, opened last July. The store will be closed by the end of January.
