AMHERST — Annie’s Garden & Gift Store, 515 Sunderland Road, will close for economic reasons, according to owner Leslie Phaneuf.
The store, established in the 1980s by Community Involved in Sustaining Agriculture founder Annie Cheatham, will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. seven days a week until Sept. 29, after which it expects to be open only Fridays and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sundays from 12 to 5 p.m. as long as inventory lasts.
Starting Saturday, all items will be marked down between 25 and 70 percent, Phaneuf said.
The official closing date will be announced once all of the inventory is sold.
