Becky Hurt, owner of The Homestead Greetings & Gifts, announced her retirement and the eminent closing of The Homestead. The business has been downtown Crawfordsville fixture since 1991. 

Plans are underway to start a store liquidation sale Monday. Customers holding store gift certificates and credits are urged to redeem them as soon as possible. Frequent buyer cards will be redeemed until the end of March.

Hurt would like to thank all the loyal customers who have supported The Homestead throughout the past 28 years.
