Country Curtains liquidating after more than 60 years

Going out of business sales now underway

Lee, Mass. – Struggling to compete in the e-commerce era, Country Curtains is closing up shop.

The company announced its liquidation earlier this month and launched going-out-of-business sales online and at its 19 retail locations. Nancy Fitzpatrick, vice chairman of The Fitzpatrick Companies, parent of Country Curtains, said in a statement posted on the company’s site that time for an alternative plan had run out.

“The challenges of a small company like ours being able to compete in the current online, retail and manufacturing environment have become enormous,” she said. “Unfortunately, in spite of the all the things we tried, we haven’t been able to turn around our financial losses and we were not able to find the right buyer.”

The business was founded by her parents Jack and Jane Fitzpatrick 61 years ago. Country Curtains employed 360 people, according to a report from MassLive.com.
