Amica, a specialty home decor and gift store on the Ligonier Diamond, will be closing its doors on Jan. 27.

"We both have so many things going on that we are unable to continue with the store," says Annie Urban, who co-owns Amica with Mamie Garver. Urban is the executive director of Fort Ligonier, and Garver is a member of the fort's education department staff.

"We made an attempt to sell but didn't find a buyer," Urban says. "I'm happy to say that the landlord has found another tenant and another boutique will be coming into the space."

Until closing day, most merchandise is 40 percent off, with remaining Christmas items marked down 75 percent.

"There are great deals to be had," Urban says.

The store at 100 E. Main St. will be open Jan. 20 and 21 during the Ligonier Ice Fest. Other hours until the closing date are 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.

Any unsold merchandise will be donated to charities and local churches.

Amica has offered unique wedding and baby gifts, women's accessories like scarves and handbags and products from Stonewall Kitchen, Wendell August and Beatriz Ball.

The store was founded by Gerry Cooper about 22 years ago, Urban says. She and Garver took over in January 2010.

"We'd like to thank the community and all those who supported the store," she says. "Our customers have become our friends."

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
