Spinnakers closed for renovations
Front Street gift shop Spinnakers has closed its doors, but only temporarily.
Owner Jay Riihiluoma said yesterday the store at 99 Front Street was closed until February 25 for the off season and for renovations.
It is the smaller sister shop to the busier Flying Colours on Queen Street. He said Spinnakers closed at the end of the year.
It is a very slow time of year, so we thought we would take advantage and do some renovations, he said.
Mr Riihiluoma said paper had been put up in the windows temporarily to protect the merchandise from the sunlight.
He said both stores did OK with cruise ship the Veendam in port last season. Without a ship this season, however, he expected business to be slower.
The Carole Holding gift store on Front Street closed its doors last year, while AS Coopers announced it was closing its Front Street Harbourside store, citing the weak economy.
