Shreveport kitchen store owner retires

Karen Durham says she plans to spend more time cooking and entertaining in retirement. She's closing her kitchen store after 23 years in business.

KitchenWorks owner Karen Durham says she's surprised that all of her inventory will be sold by the time she turns 67 next week. She announced her store closure earlier this month. Durham is saying goodbye to longtime customers who stop in to inspect her mostly bare shelves. The former high school teacher went into business with her sister in 1989, inspired by her mother's passion for cooking and a kitchen stocked with high-quality pots and pans.
