Today is the last day for Boondoggles, a gift and clothing store in downtown Beaufort.
The store, owned by Gail Edwards, has stood at 905 Bay St. since at least 2005. The owner could not be reached for comment, but a woman who answered the phone at the store and identified herself as Edwards' daughter but declined to give her name, said the store will continue selling half-priced merchandise today from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.
The closing was announced last weekend with signs in the windows and a half-price sale started.
Boondoggles, which was decorated with a pirate theme complete with a pirate dangling from the ceiling, carried items ranging from clothing to candles.

The association bought the course on Lady's Island in 2009 for $1.15 million, three years after it was closed and the property fell into neglect. At the time, the association said it would reopen the course when a professional management company was found to operate it. Additional information will be available as the opening draws closer, the spokeswoman said.
Hensley, who was at 1055 Ribaut Road, bought the Richmond Avenue building soon after the eye clinic moved to the former Friendly's restaurant on Ribaut Road. Hensley began seeing patients at the new location this month.
