Antique Emporium closing after 20 years of business

MORRIS – Morris Antique Emporium owners Robert and Elaine Schubert were given the OK Monday from Morris City Council to close down Washington Street between Liberty and Wauponsee streets for a going-out-of-business auction March 30.

The store recently announced its impending closure after 20 years of business. As part of the closure, the Schuberts want to have an outdoor auction to get rid of the store’s extra inventory.

The council originally tabled the Schuberts’ request because it had questions about how the auction would work logistically.

Morris Mayor Richard Kopczick said the Schuberts had their auctioneer explain the process to the Morris street and alley committee last week which cleared away the council’s questions.

The store will close its doors to the public March 24, but will reopen one last time for theMarch 30 auction.
