When Caldwells Patch caught a small sign that reads "Moving Sale" in the window of this week, we immediately reached out to owner Cindy Blanco to find out what was going on.
"Yes yes yes! I am moving to the fabulous Montclair!" Blanco confirmed.
The children's home furnishings and gift shop has been a draw to downtown Caldwell for many years. But it's easy to see why Blanco couldn't resist a storefront on 47 Church St., located right next to a Milk Money children's consignment shop.
Blanco anticipates opening the new shop on Sept. 1 and has begun to mark down merchandise in the two-level Caldwell location, where she will remain through the summer.
"Everything in the store is 30% off and a few floor models that are left are 75% off," she told Patch.
Saplings isn't the only business with big news in Caldwell. D. Marie, a furniture store which got its start in Montclair, has a big "Everything Must Go" sign in the window. The store's interior will be renovated and divided. D. Marie will re-open in about half the space once the work is done.
Here's what else we've noted while driving around the Caldwells:
- , a speciality shop selling all things needlepoint on Bloomfield Avenue in Caldwell, has announced a retirement sale. This store also has roots in Montclair.
- plans to relocate after moving into the old Carpet Cottage retail space in Caldwell not too long ago.
- In West Caldwell, , a men's fashion retailer on Passaic Avenue, is holding a going out of business sale.
