ROCKTON (WREX)- Country Cottage in Rockton will close by the end of Febuary.

The news comes after the owners Cyndy and Jim announced that they will be retiring.

Cyndy has been battling cancer for almost 5 years and wants to focus completely on her recovery and well-being.

Both owners say they’re sad to say goodbye, but the support they have received from the community has been astounding.

“I think the customers have made her feel super and real special. The talent that she has had in this building has been absolutely outstanding as well.” says owner Jim Fogarty.

Cyndy and Jim will be moving to Kentucky after they sell everything in the store and find a buyer for the property.
