An Iowa City arts and craft store, which has served the area since 1986, will close its doors.

Ben Franklin Crafts and Custom Frame Shop, in the Sycamore Mall, closed Sept. 1 and remain closed until Sept. 3 to prepare for its final closing.

Liquidation of its entire stock includes craft & art supplies, beads and beading supplies, quilting fabric & notions, the scrap book department, floral and greenery, baskets, candles, and more.

The liquidation period will begin at 9 a.m. Wednesday.

In a Sept. 1 press release, store owners Jane and Dean Van Loh thanked patrons for their longtime support.

“We have been proud to be part of the Iowa City business community and have strived to satisfy customers’ needs and create a fun shopping atmosphere. We have had a lot of positive comments about our store and will miss all our customers very much. This was a very tough decision for us to make and we appreciate your support. This sale is our way of thanking you for your past business.”
