No closure: Ashly finds it hard to bid farewell to Kirby

  
Do you remember the Energizer Bunny in the battery ad? It kept going, and going, and going. Ashly's Fine Rugs store is just like it. 


As reported here by the occasional Upper Kirby Pedestrian more than half a year ago -- in January -- a store-closing sale was in full swing at the UK-based purveyor of fine home furnishings and upscale decor at Steel Street. 
  
And it has been on ever since. Ashly just keeps going, and going, and going. 
  
It must be hard to give up Kirby. 


ASHLY'S NEVER-ENDING STORE CLOSING 


Still closing as of September 2015 
Ashly Store Closing Sale in January 2015
Compare that to Ueberrito and Strictly Golf on West Alabama East and West of Kirby, respectively. -- Gone virtually overnight. 

Strictly Golf No More

Ueberrito Relocation - Go see us at Our Durham
location until we announce the new address
EVERTHING MUST GO
BUT SOME ITEMS HAVE STAYING POWER
... AND IT'S NOT JUST THE RUGS 

Like the marble-ous Roman (best guess)
and the black Matador
