WILTON — After 21 years, The Printing Warehouse will close at 4:30 p.m. Friday for the last time.

A sale of the building at 371 U.S. Route 2 east is pending, said Joey Kinsey who along with his wife, Quinnale, own and operate the printing business and copy center.

The new owner is not a printer and has new plans for the space, he said. The Shoppe, an antique and collectible store, will remain in the portion the couple leases.

Joey Kinsey, 69, retired seven years ago, and his wife retired five years ago, he said. The business has been for sale for the past five years. No one has wanted to take it on, even if the Kinseys kept ownership and leased the equipment and space to them, he said.

A recent offer to buy the property cinched the decision to close, he said. The printing equipment will be sold, including an engineering copier for photocopying blueprints. 

Kinsey gained some experience in a Philadelphia print shop after high school. While working at Forster Manufacturing in Dryden, the company asked him to do in-house printing. He did it for 12 years. When the mill shut down, Kinsey bought the equipment and started The Printing Warehouse on Aug. 1, 1995.

The Kinseys plan to continue their storage unit business, 4K Storage, in Wilton.
