A few local changes that equestrian friends will want to know about:
After 21 years, Brenda Hillard has decided to close Tender Touch, her gift shop and consignment shop for tack and riding apparel in Ercildoun; its last day was Saturday, April 15. Brenda said although she is closing the shop, she plans on "keeping the business name, networking and doing some shows and Holiday Open Houses . . . I will call consignees as I get all sorted, along with paperwork."
And Pisano & Son Riding Boot Repair is closing its store at 108 West Market Street, West Chester, as of May 1. Boot repairs will still be done at the Phoenixville shop (702 Eland Village), shoe repairs at the Malvern one (5 Channing Ave.)
