After 13 years of business, Romanza Gifts and Home Decor (2206 NW Market St) is closing. The owners write that the closing is necessary, “due to the economic climate, rising expenses, and diminished sales.”
…Owners, John Sterlin with his partner, Vince Harris extend their heartfelt thanks to all of the wonderful customers who’ve continued to support Romanza during the past 13 years.
“We are truly honored to be a small part of your lives and a part of this great community. Romanza is down but not out. We are currently seeking relocation to a smaller space or perhaps a re-structuring of our business. Watch for us in the near future,” said John Sterlin, long-time Ballard resident and Owner of Romanza Gifts.
The store will be liquidating inventory as they prepare to close, with everything from products on the shelves to the actual displays for sale. They say they are also closing their location in Walla Walla after six years of business. However, they will continue to operate their e-commerce site, www.RomanzaGifts.com.
