The owners of Primitive This & That said they will be re-opening the store soon after being closed for several days.
As 18 News reported Friday, the handcrafted home decor store was seized Wednesday because owners owed a little over $39,000 in unpaid sales tax.
In a statement, owners Tim and Samantha Walburn said they did not intentionally evade sales tax collection. It was a result of a simple mistake made by their accounting firm.
They said they have since terminated their relationship with that firm and are now working with another local office with a good reputation.
They said they will be re-opening the store located in the Arnot Mall Monday Dec. 12.
