Owners of The Cobblestone Shoppe announced Thursday it will permanently close its doors by the end of March, if not sooner. The shop, located in the renovated West Building at 7 E. Second Ave., specialized in arts and crafts made by area artists. The remaining inventory will be subject to a 20 percent discount during February and March. In a prepared statement, the owners said: “Mark, Chris and Kristyn Watters express their heartfelt gratitude and appreciation to their families and friends for the unwavering support and encouragement. As well, the owners extend warmest appreciation to the gallery’s many loyal customers. “A special ‘thanks’ goes out to Cobblestone’s wonderful assembly of artists and craftsmen, all of whom have worked diligently and faithfully with Mark and Chris to give Rome and Northwest Georgia the finest in American handmade arts and crafts.”
