LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI)--The owner of interior objects has announced the store will be closing its doors indefinitely.

The gift shop first opened in 1972 and was located downtown on 11th and main streets in Lafayette.

For the last 23 years Michael Brouillette and his wife have owned the shop in Market Square. He called themselves the fortunate caretakers of the space. But now the couple is retiring.

Brouillette said he's been contacted by customers all over the country and even overseas when the news was first shared.

He said the situation is bittersweet.

"I'd be lying if I said, oh it isn't sad, because it is," Brouillette said. "But the upside is so wonderful we're looking forward to that."

Brouillette said Interior Objects wants to be a part of the holidays one last time.

Right now every item in the store is on sale, and there are even prizes for some shoppers.

He said the store will close once the last piece of merchandise is sold.

Brouillette said the timing is right to close up shop.

"The way we want to go out is, you want to know that you left with people wanting just a little bit more. You always want a party to never end and such," he said. "And we know and we feel like we're leaving the business where there's just, people will want just a little bit more."
