MOORHEAD - A longtime Fargo-Moorhead women's clothing store is closing its doors in the Moorhead Center Mall.

Canary's Fashions owner Marlys Schmidt said she will close the store at the end of a "going out of business" sale that starts at 9 a.m. Wednesday.

"It's been an ongoing decision on my part knowing that my lease was going to end," Schmidt said.

The store, which Schmidt opened on Aug. 15, 1981, in Fargo's Northport Shopping Center, moved to the Moorhead Center Mall on April 1, 1994, she said.

Located just outside the Herberger's store entrance, Canary's Fasions employs Schmidt and six part-time workers, she said. The store specialized in clothing and accessories for women age 35 and older, said Schmidt.

"This is a great corner. It's just my decision because of the point in my life and thinking about cutting back," she said. "I'm really going to miss my employees and customers big time."
