Margaret Ann Kerr, owner of 7th Avenue Boutique (Barrington Place Shops, 1903 Barrington Street, 422-8827), isn’t closing the store because of a slowdown of business. Quite the opposite. “We’re going out on a high note as this has been a banner year for 7th Avenue.” She and her husband have plans to travel, as well as another business that demands her time, so something just had to give. The good news is that she’s having a sale right now “until inventory is gone.” Buy one item at a regular price and you’ll get a second at 50 percent off. And it’s 25 percent off all accessories, jewellery and hats.
