Creative Stitches & Gifts (12817 Preston Road, Suite 137) sent out an email about the status of the shop due to a fire in their shopping center last night.
“It’s been a very long sleepless night and day since a restaurant fire occurred in our shopping center last night just before 11:00pm. Although the fire did not cause damage to the store, the property owner is requiring the stores in the vicinity of the fire to do some repairs such as replacement of all ceiling tiles and insulation as well as cleaning of the HVAC system. Due to the scope of the work involved and the number of units affected, we will remain CLOSED until further notice. The earliest we anticipate opening would be on Tuesday or Wednesday, September 4 or 5th. Of course this is dependent on the contractors and the progress they make.
“. . .we are doing our best to get the store up and running taking all the issues into account. Given the size of our store and the nature of our product, we are making sure that everything is treated with the utmost care and consideration.
“We truly thank you for your patience while we work through all these issues.”
Needlepoint News wishes them well and quick progress on the repairs.
