Cornerstone Gift Shop

A neighborhood staple for over 20 years, Cornerstone Gift Shop closed its doors at the end of January. Opened in 1995 and located on Indian School Road, west of 40th St., the local business sold greeting cards, unique gifts and had a woman’s boutique with clothes, trinkets and accessories. No word yet on the future plans for the space.
