Longtime Coventry Fixture City Buddha Will Close

Posted By on Fri, Jul 9, 2021 at 2:51 PM

Coventry has seen its fair share of changes in the last decade.

Add the departure of longtime fixture City Buddha to the list.

Owner Larry Collins, who started his business in Ohio City before moving to Cleveland Heights, announced the store's closure later this summer on Facebook today.

"After nearly a quarter-century of bringing traveled treasures to Cleveland, it's time to look into new adventures," he said. "A decision like this is never easy, but after some time to reflect (during a period in history that we shall hopefully never experience again) I am looking forward to new ways of engaging with a new world ahead."

City Buddha was on Coventry for the last 12 years. It will remain open until September with plenty of deals for customers to enjoy.
