Napa Flair Going Out Of Business
The Citrus Park store quickly became a favorite for experienced and not-so-experienced wine lovers.
Citrus Park is losing a favorite. This morning, Napa Flair alerted customers by email that the store would be closing its doors at the end of the month.
The wine store and gourmet shop, located at 11967 Sheldon Road, is a favorite in the area for its wide variety of wines, gifts and more importantly owner Luann Schapiro's extensive knowledge of wine.
The store opened two years ago. Schapiro, and her husband Ken, run the shop.
Westchase Patch wrote about Schapiro's background, which includes certification as a wine professional by The Culinary Institute of America. Read "Sharing Knowledge Is Her Biggest Reward."
News about the closing was included in the store's weekly newsletter email.
The message read:
"All good things must come to an end. As the old year passes and 2013 begins Ken and I have sadly decided to close up shop at Napa Flair. We have loved serving this community and sharing our passion for wine with all of our wonderful friends. We want to thank all of you for you support and patronage over the last two years and hope you will help us empty our wine racks in the next month. As of today our wine inventory will be discounted 10% with case purchases discounted 15%. We still have plenty of fantastic wines for you to purchase! Please mention this message to receive your discount as I am offering this deal to you our loyal customers first."
The store will continue hosting its Friday Night Wine Tastings through the month of January from 5:30 to 8 p.m.
