HAWLEY – December 31, 2015 is the day that Timely Treasures, a local landmark antique and gift retail operation, will be closing for good. The original owners, the late Bob and Pat Ohlson, opened in 1985 as an antique and antique furniture refinishing business. The business grew into it’s current location on Route 6, just east of downtown Hawley, adding a larger selection of new and antique inventory and the buying of gold, silver, coins and rare currency as a PA licensed buyer.
“We had strong store traffic this past summer and fall”, states Alec Dazenski, Store Manager, “But average sale per customer was down and expenses continued to climb.” A walk through Timely Treasures is truly a walk into the past. Their current inventory is mix of quality antiques, new and antique furniture, jewelry, holiday gifts, decor, lamps, Woodwick candles, mirrors, Moorcroft pottery, watches, coins and antique US paper money and so much more. “Everyone, from vacationers to locals, comment on how much they love the store. Unfortunately, many were not buying and we just can’t keep the doors open based on this trend.” adds Dazenski.
An inventory liquidation sale will begin mid-November and continue through the end of the year or as long as product is still available. With discounts up to 70% off, customers are urged to shop early for best selection. Timely will also raffle off a $100
Gift Basket, a perfect holiday gift, filled with specialty food items, candles and other products offered in the store. No purchase necessary. Drawing date will be Sunday, December 20 at noon. The buying of gold, silver, coins and rate currency will be ongoing during the liquidation sale. The store will be open for the 17th Annual Hawley Winterfest, December 11 thru 13. Free refreshments will be available. Regular hours are Thursday thru Tuesday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Call 570-226-2838 for more information or visit www.TimelyTreasures.com .
