Now is a good time to buy Christmas cards at Abby's Cards & Gifts in Edmonds.
The longtime store, located in the QFC Shopping Center in Westgate, will close at the end of the month.
All store merchandise is now 50 percent off.
The store is the second to close recently in the shopping center. Edmonds Liquor & Wine, which took the place of the former state-run liquor store, closed at the end of October.
