SANTA BARBARA, Calif. -

After five years in business, My Sweet Pineapple is closing up shop.

"When your average price item is around $10, and having an employee, rent, insurance and utilities that you have to pay for, it just doesn't make sense for us towards the end of the month," said store owner Sarah Anticouni.

The stylish boutique located on State Street sells new and used clothing for everyone, babies to adults.

The last day of business will be Dec. 28. half of the merchandise is 50 percent off and My Sweet Pineapple also has a $1 bin of items that make great stocking-stuffers.

My Sweet Pineapple is open Monday-Sunday until Dec. 28 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
