Going out of business

Dear Editor:

It is with great sadness that I am announcing that Once Upon a Child will be closing by Christmas. If there is anyone out there who would like to buy the store, please contact me. I think that Once Upon a Child has been an asset to the community and could probably do well with ambitious, business-minded people in charge.

Thanks to all of our loyal customers who have supported us. I have enjoyed getting to know so many of you over the last 16-plus years. It has been fun watching your children grow. I encourage everyone to support all local businesses; in this difficult economy, many of them are suffering, regardless of how they “seem” to be doing.

I received a letter from Kimberly Phillips who eloquently expressed my feelings about Once Upon a Child. She said, “I’ve always loved the paradigm of your business, the consignment and recycling of loved items for newly arrived babies. There is something very special about the items you had as they carried with them the spirit of new energy, love and hope for the future.”

We have discontinued taking items, unless you would like to donate them. Thank you for your understanding in this difficult time. Going out of business sales will begin today with everything in the store 40 percent off.

Kristin Boronski

Owner, Once Upon a Child, Glenwood Springs
