“It’s overwhelming. It’s like our little child. It’s sad to have to see it go.”
MINNEAPOLIS — Parking lots are empty across the Twin Cities as many businesses remain closed due to the pandemic.
And some business owners say they will never reopen.
The owners of Handpicked, a consignment boutique in south Minneapolis, told its customers their brick and mortar store is permanently closing.
Owners Brittany Paskey and Phung O’Neil say the financial storm of the pandemic was too much.
“Originally, we were not planning to close. We were planning to ride out the storm,” O’Neil said. “It is an emotional day for us.There is some good news however, we are not going away permanently! We will still maintain an online presence.”
