Napa Valley Kitchen Gallery to Close

Owner Lynn Campagna announced on the store's Facebook page that she will be closing up her kitchenware shop at the end of the summer. To sell off inventory, Campagna is declaring "Christmas in July."

 

Facebook fans of Lynn Campagna's are grieving at Campagna's announcement that she will be closing the kitchenware store in a few weeks:

Hello FB Fans..

It is with a heavy heart that I inform you that we will be closing up shop by summers end.

The economy has not been on our side from the get go and I have put 3.5 years of love and hard work into my dream.

In the end, It just wasn't meant to be.

There has been plenty of tears this past week, but I am taking it in stride.

I have met a lot of wonderful people from this journey and hope that our paths cross again soon.

I feel very grateful that I was even given such an opportunity and I thank you all for your support!

In the mean time... get in and take advantage of some great sales.

We are calling it "Christmas in July."

Please tell your friends & family members, we need to sell, sell, sell and the sooner the better!

Lynn

Campagna, the daughter of a Napa store owner, opened Napa Valley Kitchen Gallery on Lincoln Avenue in 2008 and then moved to her current location on School Street in downtown Napa's West End.

It is always sad to see a local independent go out of business. I wish people would think a bit more selectively instead of just assuming that Home Depot or Lowe's is the default solution to every need. Good Luck, Lynn, in whatever follows! J

I enjoyed this store and loved that it complimented Shackford's. In fact, I read somewhere that Lynn referred folks to Shackford's if they wanted something she did not carry. With the Town Center now sold and the focus being on nationals and regionals, I am fearful that our locally owned independents are threatened.

Sad to hear this story, Lynn. I hope your next venture has BIG open doors for you. Thelma and Eric Freeman Steemin' Freeman Barbecue Sauce

I'm also extremely said to see the store close and I'm sure Lynn is more than sad. I visited several times and did purchase some minor items. Ultimately, the economy has and continues to impact customers like myself. I wish I could have afforded her extremely high quality items. Lynn was always kind and hospitable as well. For those who believe the economy has turned around, unfortunately this is another sign that it has not.
