Longtime Olean Center Mall landmark store, Seasons Bookstore & Gifts, to close

OLEAN — Browsing through the latest best-selling book or the current trends in gifts will no longer be available at Olean Center Mall with the announcement that Seasons Bookstore & Gifts will close its doors.

Ron Cecchi, president of Rontina of New York, Inc., and his sister, Tina Stetz, announced this week the store will close sometime in the first quarter of 2018. Cecchi said the store has a number of ongoing sales that began Tuesday and will continue until the store closes on a date yet to be determined.

“It’s been a long process” involved with the decision to close, Cecchi said. “We have a lot of great employees and great customers. You hate to have it end, but it’s been a tough process over the past five or six years.”
