Jill Ricciardone in the newly revamped Feinstein's store in the Heights.

It's a sad moment for central Arkansas retail lovers. Feinstein's has been a fixture in The Heights neighborhood since 1957, but owner Jill Ricciardone has announced the store is closing permanently. 

"We have been in business for over 63 years, and I have been blessed to spend the last 30 of them working alongside my mother," Ricciardone said. "We are so very grateful for each of you. It's been a pleasure and an honor to work with you all, and we have been humbled by your support, not only these past several days but over the years."

Feinstein's is currently open and selling the remaining merchandise within the store at an enticing discount of 40% off store-wide. The team is anticipating that the closing sale will last several weeks, and if customers have special ordered anything, Feinstein's will provide shipping information.

Shop the closing sale Tuesday-Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. If you'd prefer to shop by private appointment, message or call Feinstein's at (501) 664-7330.
