First we hear that Toy's "R" Us is closing their doors and now for the grown-ups we have this to deal with.

Tai Pan Trading Post is closing in Boise on Milwaukee St. but that's not the only store closing. Tai Pan is also closing up shop at their Idaho Falls and Orem, Utah stores. According to boisedev.com this means the entire chain will be out of business.

A post on Facebook states that everything will be on sale during their final week of business.

This makes me so sad! I love Tai Pan and I was thrilled to discover that we had one here when I moved from Salt Lake City. I have so many things in my home from Tai Pan; dishes, lots of holiday decor, and I loved how everything was pretty affordable at Tai Pan.

It feels to me like just another sign of our normal retail shopping going away as more and more people shop online. As convenient as online shopping can be it makes me sad to see some of that old school shopping go away.
