The Cost Plus World Market at the Hillsdale Shopping Center will be closing its doors Jan. 28.
The retailer opened a new store in December and now occupies a smaller site at the Bridgepointe Shopping Center.
The Hillsdale locale is having a closing sale with items such as furniture, wall art, decor, food and other times up to 60 percent off. Most of the staff will remain with the company and relocate to the Bridgepointe store or to another site, a store manager said.
The Bohannan Development Company, owner of the Hillsdale Shopping Center, has yet to announce what will be constructed in its place since it withdrew its application to the city to redevelop the property late last year.
