Phoenix Shop Hard Goods to Close

Sad news for fans of Hard Goods: Owner Brandon Gore announced via Instagram that the store, which carries concrete wares, along with local art and other home accessories, will close up shop soon.

"It's been a fun ride, but the Hard Goods pop up shop is coming to an end (for now)," Gore wrote in the post, which features an image with text that reads, "Big Thanks."

Gore, who is a concrete artisan and owns Gore Design Co., noted that the official closing date (probably three or four weeks away) will be announced this week and almost everything in the shop, including fixtures, furnishings and merchandise, will be on sale for 10 percent off. The discount does not apply to artist consignment items, and all sales are final.

We've reached out to Gore for comment and will update when we hear back.
