Nouveau Home and Interior Design is closing its doors in Mount Vernon at the end of the summer, the co-owners announced Thursday.
Co-owners Steve Appel and Lee Whitehead said in a statement that they plan to “search for a new location,” blaming the closure on “the rise of online shopping, competition from national chains, an upcoming increase in the wholesale price of furniture and expected tariffs.”
"It really has to do with people's buying habits,” Appel said in a phone interview. “With our lease expiring at the end of the summer, we just took a long, hard look at things. I just feel like this is a good time [to reinvent our business]."
