May 11, 2023
Here it is the first day of May and the beginning of our 30th year of business…Yes, 30 years!
It is also the day I officially announce that we are RETIRING and CLOSING the Village Shops at Down A Country Road at the end of the 2023 season. ( date to be determined).
I started this business with a head full of dreams, and a heart full of faith & God has blessed us incredibly over these 30 years! While this is the hardest decision I have ever had to make … for that I am grateful!
But ultimately retirement is upon us, and Chuck and I look forward to the next chapter. We want to stay here on the farm for as many years as we can, and thus the business will be closed. If you have further questions, please see below. I will not be answering questions in the comments, but rather in the private Facebook group.
We will be open 9 to 5 Monday through Saturday as usual, but always check our Facebook page for updates as we wind down.
The shops are filled with lots of new inventory and we hope that this 30th and final season will be the best yet! We hope that you will bring your friends and family to see what we have built over these 30 years.
Over the next 6 months or so I will be sharing lots of information on a private Facebook group. I will answer all of your questions, and I will be sharing the journey of building a 30 year small ,but successful business and the process of closing it, and some of my thoughts and plans for the future. If you’d like, please join me at down a country road with Kathy
Thanks to everyone who has supported our small business over the years!
