The English Rose Tearoom’s last day open will be Aug. 26.

“We lost our lease … and I’ve been trying to bring on another owner … but it didn’t materialize,” owner Sharon Gilley said Wednesday. “We are very sad to have to do this.”

Gilley thanked all the customers who have come to the 1401 Market St. location since it opened in 1997.


She’s offering specials this week before closing Saturday.
