DELAFIELD — After nearly eight years of operation in downtown Delafield, Bittersweet Gifts and Accessories announced via its Facebook page that it will close.

A going-out-of-business sale started Thursday at the store, 609 Milwaukee St.

According to the Facebook post, “It is with a thoughtful heart that we have decided to close Bittersweet. We started this venture nearly 8 years ago when our youngest children were juniors in high school. We knew we had to take on a challenge to keep ourselves engaged.

“Since then our families have grown. We have sons-in-law and a daughter-in-law & grandchildren. It is time for our next chapter.”

The post goes on to say that the store was opened during the recession and without its loyal customers, it wouldn’t have remained open for eight years. Also, full Bittersweet punch cards can still be redeemed, but rewards will no longer be earned.
