From the owner of California Imports in Painseville, Marcia Winfield:
It is with a heavy heart that we have to say that after 30 years California Imports, Inc., will be closing its doors at the end of November. Many of you have been such faithful patrons of our business, some since the first day, and many much more recently. We want to extend our deepest appreciation and say THANK YOU and WE WILL MISS YOU! Please know that it was you that kept our doors open these past 30 years. We could not have made it without you!
When we started this business at the marina in Grand River, my children were youngsters. They now have children, our grandchildren, who are even older than my kids were back in that day. I have gotten older myself and being able to see 70 fast approaching, it is clear that it is time for me to retire.
We are actively looking for a buyer and pray that someone steps up. If you know anyone interested in taking this business to the next level, please ask them to contact me and I will put them in touch with my broker. If we don’t find a buyer, California Imports will close November 25, 2014.
We all have made lasting memories with you and will never forget the sweet treats that you brought to share with us, the pictures of your children and special events, the concern and support you showed through my husband’s bypass surgery last summer, and so much more. You have no idea how much your caring and support have meant to each one of us over the years. It has been a true joy and pleasure to serve you and watch your beautiful families grow and start their own families. Make no mistake – this has always been so much more than just business, and we will miss you all so very much.
Please stop by and take advantage of our generous sales as we try to sell down our inventory, and of course please stop in to say goodbye. While it is bittersweet for all of us, and goodbyes bring tears, remember this too is a part of life.
May God bless each one of you as He has blessed us in knowing you!
With love, thanks and appreciation,
Marcia and Tom Winfield
Makensy Atwell and staff
