Final Act for Center Stage; Store Will Close Its Doors
It's the beginning of the holiday shopping season, but one store in Gainesville is forced to close its doors because of lagging sales from the Halloween holiday.
Center Stage, a costume shop, is about to have it's final act because it's going out of business.
The owner, Judi Cain, says she's helped customers play dress up for 29 years, but she's forced to close the store because Halloween season was slow this year.
She says her time in business, though, has been magical.
Cain says the economy, an unseasonably warm Halloween and the Georgia-Florida game scheduled on Halloween were all factors in the store having to close.
She says she plans to auction off items in the store and donate money to local performing arts groups.
