Popular Retail Store in Pittsburg will close

Updated:

 

It's a one of a kind shopping experience clients say, but banners outside confirm the days are numbered for the retail store.
 
After more than 47 years in business, the owner of Little's Inc. has decide to retire.

"I hate to see it go but I know its time," said customer Mary-Jo Vanwalleghem.

Vanwalleghem a resident of Kansas City, Mo travels the hundred or so miles for her retail therapy. 

The store remains popular among her family.

"My mother shopped here most of my sisters shopped here," Vanwalleghem.

"Well I'm not sick and I'm not broke, I want to take a little time off and enjoy another area of my life," said Little's Inc. Owner Patrick O'Bryan.  

O'Bryan also a Pittsburg City Commissioner and once the city's mayor started at Little's while in college, and it won't be easy saying goodbye. 

"Its emotional to tell these people you are not going to be able to take care of them," said O'Bryan.  

"I run into people all the time in Kansas City that say oh yeah that's right on the main drag in Pittsburg," Vanwalleghem.

The store plans on closing the end of October.
