Angie Harnden has run her baby boutique for three years, but she’s hanging up her baby bonnets and moving them to her mom’s store this month.
She said she plans to close Sweet Pea Baby Boutique by the end of the month and find a new tenant to rent the storefront at 1354 Market St., preferably someone who wants to open a coffee shop.
Harnden said she wants to spend more time with her 5-year-old daughter, Allie. “She’s kind of the inspiration for the store and she has outgrown everything now, so it’s time,” Harnden said.
“Sweet Pea is an adorable little boutique, and she has had an extremely loyal customer base that I think would have stayed with her for always,” Nelson said.
McClaskey, 55, has been coming to the store since it opened and said she likes the friendly service at the local shop.
“I’m going to hate to see it close,” she said as she left the store.
“I know, me too,” Harnden replied quietly.
