After 15 years, Judi’s of Nevada City is closing.

The lease on the property will be up in July, said Judi Weiner. Co-owners Judi and Bob Weiner decided they wanted spend more time outside of work.

“I want to go and play, spend some time with family,” said Judi Weiner, who has children and grandchildren in the Bay Area as well as Southern California.

Judi Weiner and her husband moved to Nevada County from southern California in 2002. They’ve witnessed their two daughters’ weddings in the area and, at the time, began making a new life for themselves in town.

Judi Weiner, who previously practiced homeopathic medicine, saw a business go up for sale. Having worked in retail, she decided to make the leap and buy it.

“It was scary and it was second-guessing — ‘did I make the wrong choice?’” She asked herself at the time.

The co-owner said she loves fashion, clothing textures and textiles. Her passion allowed the shop to have success.

“People seemed to enjoy what I was buying and it just grew,” she said.

In early spring, the co-owners made the decision to close the store, said Judi Weiner. Rather than cancelling her recent orders, she decided to put spring merchandise on sale at 30 percent off, and fall and winter merchandise on sale at 50 to 70 percent off.

“I want to offer a huge thank you to the community for supporting us all these years,” said Judi Weiner.

The co-owner has been happy to help women feel good about themselves, selling high-quality items that stand the test of time.

One customer told Judi Weiner she bought a jacket from her when she first opened 15 years ago and still wears it, frequently receiving compliments when she does.

It’s that joy of giving to the community she may miss most.

“I love working with women. Women are just amazing,” she said.
