Julia Ellen, the upscale boutique that’s called Proctor home for 15 years, is closing its doors.
“I’ve done this for 32 years total, 20 years of owning my own, and you hit the point where you are done,” owner Julie Schmidtke said today. “We decided this was the best time of year to have a big closing sale.”
It started Thursday, and the store will close when everything’s gone, she said.
Schmidtke said that she started about 18 months ago to try to find a buyer for the store but that all of them fell through.
