|In The 216's closing sale is in its final days.|
I have good news and bad news. The bad news is one of my favorite local shops is closing. In The 216, 11512 Clifton Blvd., plans to close this weekend. Its Coventry Road store has closed already.
The good news is you can find a lot of bargains while In The 216 remains open. Clothing, glassware, jewelry, photographs, food items and greeting cards, all Cleveland-related and many Cleveland made, are among the items marked down as much as 50 percent.
Sunday will be the shop’s last day, said owner Jenny Goe, who has a store full of merchandise plus inventory from the Coventry shop. The prices, which might be reduced even more before the shop’s final day, make a visit worthwhile. I’ve gone in twice since the closing sale began and I’ll try to make one more trip this weekend. I can’t tell you what I bought because I might have bought something for you.
After the closing, you’ll still be able to shop In the 216 online. Jenny also plans to sell at pop-up locations, including the old Coventry site, after she takes a break to tend to her health. She recommends following In The 216 on Facebook or Instagram to find out when and where she’ll be.
It’s barely April, but you could do some early Christmas shopping this week. You also could find gifts for birthdays, graduations, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, housewarmings and any other special occasions on your calendar. While you're there, pick up a few things for yourself, too.
