After just more than year in business in OTR, Substance announced this morning that it’ll be closing its doors for good. The OTR-based sustainable fashion-focused business (which we wrote about here in Cincy Chic) has a sister store based in Short North, Columbus that’s been in business for more than 8 years. The owner Christina wrote in her blog today that she’s closing both shops to spend more time with her family that’s relocating to South Carolina.
While she’s still entertaining offers for someone to buy the shops and website, Christina says she has a tight deadline of April 30 to meet for that to happen. Otherwise, the doors are set to close mid-June. So, you have until then to use your gift cards, and the entire store is marked down 25%.
Sad to see a business close, especially one with such a strong commitment to a worthy cause, but as I start my own family this year, I can completely understand the need for a work-life balance. I wish you and your family all the best Christina. As for you, shoppers, sounds like it’s time to score some great deals while the gettin’s good!
