A transition is taking place at 513 Chetco Ave. in Brookings.

Judy's Resale, a popular clothing store located at that address, is closing it's doors to re-open as Angel's Nest.

Nancy Fair, proprietor of Judy's Resale, is behind the change,which will be complete sometime in February.

The owner of Judy's Resale for four years, Fair decided earlier in the year to close the store for a variety of reasons. She cited a "gradual drop-off" in customers as one reason for the change.

"If I knew that there would be a payoff in summer, I would have considered staying open as Judy's Resale," Fair explained, "The tourists just didn't come last summer."

Changing the name of her store and diversifying what she sells is her plan to stay in business.

Angel's Nest will be full of "fun things," according to Fair, including home decor, furniture, pictures, clothing and jewelry.

The items will be a mix of new and gently used. "There will be no junk." Fair explained. A portion of the store's profits will go Haven of Hope women's shelter in Brookings.

Fair said she enjoyed and appreciated her many customers and looks forward to visiting with them again soon.

She said the store will be "closed down a couple of weeks" and then will reopen under its new name sometime in February.

"GM very clearly made some incredibly poor decisions when it came to their culture," Friedman said in an interview Monday. "They were more worried about us (NHTSA) getting information about problems than they were about actually fixing problems." Earlier on Monday, the chief of GM's victim settlement fund raised the number of deaths from accidents caused by the automaker's defective ignition switches to 19, up from 13.

  • Alibaba boosts IPO as demand strengthens
    HONG KONG/NEW YORK (Reuters) - Alibaba Group Holding Ltd [IPO-BABA.N] raised the price range on its initial public offering to $66 to $68 on Monday, reflecting strong demand from investors for the year's most anticipated debut and potentially the world's largest-ever IPO. The company and selling shareholders will now raise almost $22 billion at the top of the new IPO range. Alibaba remains on track to set an IPO record if underwriters exercise an option to sell additional shares to meet demand, overtaking Agricultural Bank of China Ltd's $22.1 billion listing in 2010. Alibaba embarked on its roadshow for the IPO last week and attracted enough demand to cover its entire deal within two days, people familiar with the process said last week.
