Time to stock up your kitchen: Lemon Gem Kitchen Goods plans to close up shop this fall.
The shop opened in The Grove in November 2016, offering everything from pots, pans, spatulas and spoons to aprons, rolling pins and cookbooks, as well as a selection of locally made paper goods, rolling pins, granola, olive oil and more.
Lemon Gem's retail floor will close at the end of September, with the upstairs event space closing at the end of October. Starting Sept. 1, the shop will only be open four days a week (Thursday through Sunday). The entire store will be 20 percent off, with the percentage increasing each week throughout the month. Gift cards must be used by Sept. 30.
"It’s a decision that was not made lightly, and we’re sad to close this chapter of our lives," owner Beth Styles said on Instagram. "But we’re proud of what we brought to The Grove, and will miss seeing the familiar faces we came to know and love, the conversations & and the amazing recipes you all are always sharing by with us when you buy your kitchen tools. From the bottom of our hearts: Thank you."
