The owners of Nathan Levin Furs, in the Chelsea Heights section of Atlantic City, will close their landmark business on Albany Avenue.
Shoshana Levin said she and husband Nathan, of Margate, will retire and close the business in the second half of March.
“My husband has been doing this for 42 years and needs a break,” she said.
The closing, along with that of a fur shop in Ventnor, will leave the area without a specialty fur retailer.
“My husband tells me there used to be 50 shops that carried furs here, in the 1950s,” Shoshana Levin said.
She said many of the pieces at Nathan Levin Furs had been made at the shop in recent years. Arrangements have been made to move furs in storage to another retailer.
“We have talented children in New York we never see, and now we can see them,” she said, referring to daughter Jessica Levin, who has a show on HBO called “Treme,” and son Ely Levin, who is vice president and creative director of a Manhattan advertising agency.
