One thing holds true with all cities: Businesses open and businesses close. In the last month, three businesses in the City of Eudora have or are about to shut their doors for the final time.
Past and Present Treasures at 729 Main Street downtown closed up a few weeks ago. Kim and Jerry Hunter are moving their shop to 207 W. Dennis Ave. in Olathe. The Hunters will be located at an established business, A Place in Time Antiques and Flea Market.
“We enjoyed meeting and getting to know the wonderful people that have are not only been our customers but turned out to become friends that reside in Eudora and surrounding communities,” Kim Hunter said. “I would like to thank our customers for their support and that we will miss seeing them on a regular basis. Without them, we would not have been as successful as we were this last year we were in Eudora. ”
The Hunters expect to have their section of the store in Olathe fully ready to go by May 1.
Also closing up shop is The Filling Station which was located just up and across from past and Present Treasures on Main Street next door to Cami’s Cake Company.
Anita Mitts, owner of the story recently posted the following on her shop’s Facebook Page:
“Due to changes in our personal and professional lives our family business will end. We have truly enjoyed sharing in the joy and happiness of this community and wish you all the best.”
The last day of operation for the The Filing Station was April 7th.
The third business to close down is Java to Go located in the C & S Market parking lot at 14th and Church Street. Co-Owner Erica Ganson told us the decision to close was based upon income.
“I got a job offer the gives me more income and a little more stability,” Ganson said. “I couldn’t pass it up.”
Ganson added that the clientele for the drive through coffee shop was building steadily, but that the income was just not substantial enough to continue operations.
Java to Go will shut the drive through coffee shop at close of business on Friday morning at 9:30.
Editor’s Note: As a side note, we have received word from the owners of Rebel Roxie Rose that several people have reported to them they thought Rebel Roxie Rose closed up. Sandy Clark, one of the owners, wanted us to assure readers that they are in fact open and should not be confused with The Filling Station. Rebel Roxie Rose is located at 101 W. 10th Street in the location previously occupied by Byrne’s Pharmacy. Rebel Roxie Rose is one of the many fine sponsors of Eudorareporter.com.
