We always rejoice when Knoxville brings in a new business but today it’s with a sad heart that I write about one closing. The “ Repeat ETC at 8079 Kingston pike is closing their doors after 28 years of being in business.
Repeat ETC, has been your go to shop for: antiques, home needs, and the perfect trinkets for your loved ones. It was a business filled with love, a love for people and knoxville. Owner Mary Jo Brewer issued a statement saying that after 28 years she has made the hard decision to close and spend more time with her husband Carl, her two daughters, and 4 grandkids. Of course a decision like this doesn’t come easy and she states, “she loves and will miss the opportunity to serve and sell” like she has done for so many years.
It’s a rare thing these days to see a business like this still open and I for one will be sad the day I can’t just drop by and end up buying $100 worth of items that I can give away to the perfect loved one.
Doors will close on August 31, 2017 and everything must sale so if you’re like me and you love antique shops stop reading this and go right now! Tell Mary Jo that McCalla Around Knoxville sent you. And thank you Mary Jo for putting your love and care into Knoxville your business will be greatly missed!
