OLYMPIAN CANDIES BECOME 4th DOWNTOWN BUSINESS OF NOTE TO CLOSE IN A YEAR

(Richmond, IN)--Yet another downtown Richmond business is shutting its doors.  This time, it’s Olympian Candies.  Olympian had operated in downtown Richmond for over a century, but posted on social media Monday that it would close a week from Saturday.  Owners cited downtown Richmond construction and an overall poor business climate as reasons for the closure.  Olympian becomes at least the fourth significant downtown business to close its doors in the last year, joining Veach’s, Chase Bank, and Elder-Beerman.  Olympian owners say they may re-open elsewhere in the future, but it certainly will not be downtown.
