Amighini Architectural, which opened in June 2010 at 3429 East Coast Highway, will be closing its Corona del Mar shop by the end of June.
A sign recently was placed in the shop’s window announcing a moving sale and gave addresses for the business’s Anaheim and San Diego locations.
The family-owned business was founded in 1951 in Verona, Italy and has since expanded to three continents, according to an interview with a family member in 2010; read the story here. The company specializes in salvaging architectural pieces from buildings in Europe, focusing on Italy, then refurbishing and importing the pieces.
The Corona del Mar shop was the company’s first retail space, but an employee said that walk-in traffic wasn’t what the owners had hoped for.
The shop will remain open until the end of May with the possibility that it will remain open until June. Items in the shop will be discounted, and what does not sell will be moved to other locations to be sold at full price.
