Twist & Turns is closing its retail store at Valley View Mall, but they will still make the metal furniture for which they are best-known — and open a sales gallery at their Campbell Avenue manufacturing site near the Jefferson Center. WFIR’s Evan Jones has the story.[audio:http://wfirnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/03/03-29-TwistTurns-Wrap1-WEB.mp3|titles=03-29 TwistTurns Wrap1-WEB]
Twist & Turns President Cynthia Willis has nothing but praise for Valley View, but she says the overall retail environment remains difficult, and she is retiring from that side of the business. Twist & Turns moved its retail store to Valley View in October 2010 after almost 20 years in downtown Roanoke. She plans to close the Valley View at the end of April and open the on-site retail gallery in early May.
