Lee’s Flooring & Rugs is shutting its doors Monday, April 28 after 25 years of serving the Beaufort community. Owner Kathy Henry is retiring.
“I love our store and have enjoyed being a part of the local business community,” said Ms. Henry. “I will continue to be involved in community activities, just not as a business owner. I’m looking forward to the freedom that comes with retirement.”
A retirement sale to eliminate rug inventory will end Monday, April 28. Lee’s is located inside of Perimeter Walk, a one-stop home furnishing center anchored by FWDG, a furniture store established in 1972.
The retirement sale inventory is being shown both in the Lee’s Flooring store as well as in the FWDG foyer. FWDG employees will assist in selling the rugs. The product has been marked down to its lowest pricing.
Larry Mark, owner of FWDG, says that Kathy and Lee’s Flooring and Rugs will be missed here once closed.
“Rugs-N-More, a division of Lee’s, was our first tenant when my partners and I built Perimeter Walk,” said Mark. “Kathy and Chuck Henry showed confidence in our new and unique concept. I think it worked for them. I know it worked for us.”
When asked if he knew if anything would go in the former Lee’s location after the sale, Mark said, “Well, I think it is perfectly suited for a rug store,” but wouldn’t say more about future plans.
