Whit's End to Close in January

Dear Whit’s End Shoppers, Decatur Community, Friends, and Neighbors,

It is with great disappointment that we let everyone know that unfortunately, we have decided to close Whit’s End for business in mid to late January, and will be out of our space at the end of January. We just are unable to keep things going with the state of the economy, and after a very disappointing holiday shopping season, we see no reason to continue. We are so appreciative of everyone who supported our efforts over the last 3 years. It is hard to see our dream disappear, but it’s been a great experience, and we are proud that we lasted as long as we did.

We’ve always been able to pay our bills, but were not able to get the growth we needed to stay in business. We believe we were diligent in seeking out what our customers wanted. Having high quality, affordable and casual clothes for guys in a comfortable environment with parking and personal service was our goal. After living in Decatur for many years and doing our research, we truly believed a shop like ours could thrive here, as we know we filled a void and did something different. We know many will miss our store.

So, now we really need your help in clearing out our inventory and fixtures, so come shopping! Everything must go, and will be 40% - 75% OFF in order to move it out. Needing to pay our remaining bills, we really hope to sell it all. All sales will be final. Please forward this information on to anyone you may know who loves a bargain, we really need the word to get out so all the items move. All valid store credits and gift certificates are good until the store’s closing. Any exchanges on holiday gifts may be done until January 10th.

Also, I (Jeff) am now looking for a new career, or even a part-time job. So, anyone with any ideas or openings, please keep me in mind. I have my resume and cover letter ready to go. Our website, email, and phone number will be shut down, and we can be reached at our home, 404.377.8130, once the store closes.

Thanks so much for 3 great years, and we look forward to seeing everyone around town. Please continue to shop local and support the great Decatur businesses, it is important for our community’s vitality. We hope you enjoy the holiday season.
