Knitty City is 6!
At Knitty City, we get a lot of sincere enjoyment from telling you, our customers and friends, how grateful we are to know and serve the community, and we cannot think of a better way to start the New Year, and begin our 7th year in business, than by telling you, again, how much we appreciate you and your business. We have built Knitty City together and you have been instrumental in making the dream come true. As we celebrate our Sixth anniversary on January 7, we would like to extend a heartfelt invitation to you and your friends to come by the store and enjoy, with us, the fruits of our labor. There will be a store- wide sale (10% off on EVERYTHING), lots and lots of cake and lots of happy faces. Please join us this Saturday any time from 11-6 PM. Arvin likes to buy lots of cake, so, if you don't make it on Saturday, it's a sure bet that there will be some cake still there on Sunday.
