Main Street business closes

July 29, 2013

A custom frame business on Main Street is closing shop and moving out.

“We’re closing doors at the end of this month,” confirmed Jeanette Rushbrook, owner of Been Framed located at 126 W. Main Street.

The business will be moving to Thurmond into the residence of Rushbrook, who will operate by appointment only.

“It’s very expensive to try to make ends meet and keep a storefront. It’s a tough decision to close the doors,” said Rushbrook. “It takes about $1,000 a month just to keep the doors open, once you factor rent and all the utilities.”

It’s not all gloomy news for Rushbrook, though. She carefully weighed her decision to close in exchange for a full-time job.

“I’ve taken employment with PGW,” Rushbrook revealed.

Pittsburgh Glass Works is a leading glass manufacturer that has set up a plant in Elkin. Rushbook, sporting a PGW badge, has been training for a position at the plant.

Rushbrook would not discuss the details of the new position nor the PGW operation.

Cavu Printing, which also uses the address with Been Framed, has already vacated the property, according to Rushbrook.

The vacant property is available for lease. Information pertaining to the lease is handled by calling Kennedy Auto on Main Street at 336-835-4547.
