It is with great sadness that I announce Linen World is closing its doors after 40 years in business effective Friday December 20th. At the end of the day, changes in the way people shop, and more directly, the demand & cost to support free shipping, has left us no choice and we are unable to continue.

As a family owned company, we have been blessed to work with wonderful Consultants, Hostesses, Customers, Employees & Vendors. We thank you for your support and friendship through the decades.

I am crushed beyond words. I fought so hard for this to succeed because the company was woven into my life since I can remember. We will get through this. There are tears, anger and remorse. We really appreciate the outpouring of support, friendship & humanity from our family, friends, associates & customers.

The High Cost of Free Shipping

This perfectly illustrates what happened to us, and will happen to others, with free shipping. I believed we could push through the changes, but the compounded effects of the shipping issue (not volume, operations or revenue) is not going to go away and will only get worse. Free shipping is going to be Amazon's ultimate death bell to many online retailers large and small in the coming years.
