Going out of business signs have gone up at the Kitchen & Co.store in Stanton-Christiana.
The big box kitchen supplies and equipment store was a part of a six-unit chain that is operated by Calvert Retail, which is based in Montchanin.
The company continues to operate a Kitchen & Co. store in the Coastal Highway outlet area in Lewes-Rehoboth.
Smaller retail chains have been under pressure by online giants like Amazon and companies like Kohl’s, which have invested heavily in online businesses.
In 2016, Calvert acquired the Southern Season store and online business in Chapel Hill, NC. The company also acquired locations of Reading China & Glass.
