A Word from Saloni
So long, farewell
Auf Weidersehen, goodbye
We leave and heave
A sigh and say goodbye
-- Sound of Music
It's time for Nine Rubies to say "Goodbye." After 10 years of running a family business -- a family of Sudha, Saloni, our staff and all of you -- we have made the decision to keep the family and say goodbye to the business. We are closing down the San Mateo yarn store, the online store, and the knitting-pattern iPad app in late March.
We want to thank you for supporting us and walking this path with us for the last ten years. Your dedication as customers and camaraderie as knitters has meant more than you can imagine. And I want to thank my mother for being the catalyst and co-founder that walked this path with me.
If you have gift certificates or store credit, please come and redeem them. If you have yarn on hold, please stop by the store pick it up. There will be no yarn on hold after the 20th of February. We have shipments from suppliers coming in until March 10th.
You can buy yarn from us until March 20th. Oh yes, the fixtures and equipment are for sale too, except for the fabulous chandelier. That belongs to the building.
Our last day is March 20th, 2016. You are all invited to an unraveling party that day at the lovely store on 3rd Ave. that we call home between 10 am and 5 pm.
Come see us and bid adieu,
Saloni, Sudha, and the staff of Nine Rubies
