C.I.S. Sportswear Closing July 31
Carol Sullivan is retiring. The owner of C.I.S. Sportswear at 806 Caroline St. in downtown Fredericksburg is closing her store.
The women’s specialty boutique features classic pieces to fun items like seasonal and novelty sweaters. Handbags, decorative belts and colorful jewelry — including Brighton accessories — define the shop.
Sullivan said she would sell the shop, but has had no offers. So, she’s hung a “Retirement Sale” banner and plans to close the C.I.S. door for good at the end of the day on July 31, 2014.
C.I.S. Sportswear is located next door to a recently vacated storefront. A Place in Time at 804 Caroline St. closed in February. Owners Judy and Dick Balch retired after 26 years running the business, 17 of those in Fredericksburg. That business was also for sale, but there were no buyers. That space is now for lease.
