Winchester businesses close doors

Two local businesses have recently closed.

The Banery closed to the public effective June 3.

Owners and sisters Susan Mitmesser and Ann Stenzel opened the Banery, located at 220 Frontier Way, in April 2017.

According to its Facebook page, The Banery has committed to fulfilling existing contracts throughout 2018, but are not taking any other orders. Its facility is no longer open.

Unicorn Books and Music, located at 18 N. Main St., also closed its doors at the end of April. The family-run store opened in June 2017. According to a Facebook post, the Unicorn is exploring options to reopen in a new location focusing on rock/pop music and the family’s favorite genres of books.

“We’ve met some fascinating people who shared amazing stories with us, and we wish to sincerely thank all of you for your support,” the owners said in the Facebook post.
