Stuts Hallmark is expected to close by June 4.

A business that has been a fixture in the downtown Aledo for decades is closing its doors. Stuts Hallmark Shop, 101 N. College Ave., will close, but Stuts Drug Store will remain open.

Owner Dave Relander said the Hallmark store is in the process of closing. A sign reading "Going out of business" is in the front window of the store.

"I think the final day will probably be by June 4," Relander said.

The news is not all bad. In addition to the drug store continuing to do business as usual, he said the Hallmark space will not sit empty. Relander was reluctant to discuss in any detail the future of that part of the building, but he did hint there's something on the horizon.

"It's going to become something else," Relander said, "which I can't disclose at this time."
