WEB: Razook's Closes Doors
Leslie Razook, who ran the business for her father, said the decision was made because she just became tired of retail.
But the store may have been struggling to find a customer base. It offers high-end designer clothes for women.
Razook said that retail business in general has changed so much since her grandparents opened the store 87 years ago that there isn't much left for her.
"I've really sort of had it with retail," she said.
Razook's Inc., had stores in Pinehurst, Raleigh and Greenwich, Conn. Her father, George Razook, lives in Connecticut and is the owner of the businesses. Leslie Razook said running stores from that far away is difficult.
"I don't live in Pinehurst," she said. "That's one of the problems."
Razook's closed its doors for good July 28, leaving nothing but an empty storefront and a stunned downtown community. She stressed that she loves her customers.
