After 13 years in business, Kidiniki, a specialty store filled with gifts for infants and toddlers, is closing its doors in Strawberry Village.
“The trickling down of the economy is what is boils down to,” said manager Luisa Massey-Blake. Retail has been rough since 2009, she said, and more people shopping online has resulted in the decision to close the store.
Last week Kidiniki launched a 40 percent going-out-of-business sale and items have been flying off the shelves, Massey-Blake said. The store stocks a broad selection of clothing, toys, and accessories from brands like Heartstrings and Baby Biscotti as well as a high-end boutique collection.
“We’ve had a good response with our sale,” Massey-Blake said. “It’s been incredible.”
Kidiniki will close once everything is sold.
“I would be surprised if we will be open another week,” she said.
There’s been a flux of businesses closing in the Strawberry Village shopping center this month. Bliss Home & Design plans to shut its doors in April, and the gift shop Nicole Grey & Co. is also holding a moving sale and plans to close at the end of the month.
