    Default The Old Country Store in Lancaster, PA has closed.

    My friend received this email today, does anyone know why? Our annual trip to Lancaster for the show and shopping won't be the same this year. May in Jersey

    After 35 years of business, The Old Country Store has unexpectedly needed to close its doors.

    We appreciate your patronage and apologize for any inconvenience this causes. Thank you.

    We received the email this morning. Very sad. There are some comments on their Facebook page stating that they closed without any warning and still owe employees two weeks back pay that they don't have the funds to cover.

    That is sad - I loved that store too! They had a great selection of Hoffman 1895 batiks.

    May - I just made my hotel reservations today for the show - can't spend a week like I would like to, but I can spend all day Thursday at the show. I can't wait!

    This is sad...I always enjoyed buying from them. They gave superior customer service. I only ordered from the online, but I enjoyed shopping and felt secure about using my credit card there. Barb

    Another beautiful store that the economy has taken a gigantic bite from! So sad. I loved that place.

    Amy, Glad you reminder me, I need to make my reservations also. No more Wed. to Sat. trips for me. My legs can't take all the stops at every fabric shop in the area. Our friend George had this big old car that we all piled into and he drove us all over. Now I let them spend a few days doing the big shopping thing and catch up with them on Friday. We have dinner together, then Show and Tell and hang out in each others room til late. We meet for breakfast on Sat. then pack up and head home.

    Sorry to hear you are all losing a favorite shop. Even sorry to hear they can't pay their employees, especially at Christmas time.

    Yesterday I got an email from one of their other stores in intercourse that it closed without much information. It is the good cooking store. It was owned by the fix it and forget it cookbook author(Phyllis Pellman Good). I have a gift card for rhis store. I emailed them to inform me what Ican do about my gift card, but I haven't heard from them. I really didn't think I would, but I thought I would try.Just last week I got an email from them about their January and February cooking classes. Which makes the abrupt closing very odd. Today I got the email about the old country store closing. I actually live only 30 minutes from Intercourse and obviously shop there quite often.
    If I here anything about the closing I will let you know.

    Wow ruby, you found this fast. I have been looking for articles since yesterday. I even checked Lancaster online
    earlier today. I live in the area, so thought I would find out about it thru word of mouth. Thank you for posting this.
