Revive on Lee Road to close in April
Lisa Dunn, owner of Revive, has announced that the independent fair-trade boutique will close in April. Dunn opened the store, at 2248 Lee Road, in 2006.
In a press release, Dunn cited the 2016 street construction on Lee Road as a factor in the store’s closing, stating that several months of reduced traffic flow and sales volume left the business unable to recoup those losses.
“After 10 years doing business in our wonderful community of Cleveland Heights, this was not an easy decision to make,” said Dunn. “We are grateful, both to our customers for their decade of support, and to the artisans we work with for their meaningful partnerships. Our hope is that our patrons continue to support fair trade and social justice in any way they can.”
All of the items sold by Revive are fair trade—an alternative commerce structure that is committed to paying producers a living wage.
The store’s inventory and fixtures are for sale. “Customers will receive deep discounts on every item in both the storefront location and online at ReviveStore.com, along with free Revive swag with every purchase, while supplies last,” said Dunn.
Store hours are Monday through Friday, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.; and Sunday, noon to 4 p.m.
