Annie’s set to close its doors

Anne Cavicchi has announced that she is “semi-retiring” and closing her store after 12 years in business.

Local shoppers will dearly miss Annie’s Boutique when it closes its doors for good later this month.

Anne Cavicchi has announced that she is “semi-retiring” and closing her store after 12 years in business. Originally on Baker Street, the store relocated last year to its present location in the Front Street Emporium.

“I have loved having my store and Nelson is such a wonderful place to own a business. We have such great and loyal customers who really care about supporting local businesses.  It is just time for me personally to simplify my life and that means focusing more on my family and working with the children in our local schools. Some people have expressed sympathy, but it is a happy decision for me as it is something I want to do, not something I have to do.”

When asked about her community involvement, Anne said she “was fortunate through my business to be able to spearhead projects like Take it Off Day and the Pink T-Shirt Day anti-bullying campaign. Although many people associate these with Annie’s Boutique, I will still continue with these in the future.”

The closing/retirement sale started in February. Annie’s Boutique is located at 601 Front Street in Nelson.
