Bizim Collection Closing
The shop's owners are considering a move to Turkey.
After 12 years of running a business and nine years in its current King Street location, the owners of Bizim Collection are closing shop.
Co-owner of the family-run business Jody Uyanik says she and her husband Mikail Uyanik are considering moving to Turkey, where Mikail is from.
Jody Uyanik said the shop would close at the end of April and everything in the store is currently 50 percent off. The shop sells items for home such as lamps, decor and furniture as well as jewelry, handbags and shoes created and purchased directly from Turkish artisans.
"We have had such a wonderful time being here in this community," she said.
The store opened in August 2001, right before many businesses' sales plummeted after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11. "We've ridden out a few waves of adversity," she said, adding "but this has been a really good run."
