Picture Perfect is closing its West Central store because the owners have found a picture-perfect new spot: NewMarket Square .
"We think that's where everybody's shopping," says Tracy McKissick , who owns the print shop with her husband, Trent .
The McKissicks will close their store at 8000 W. Central by Bishop Carroll High School after business Saturday.
There's also a Picture Perfect at Central and Edgemoor that will remain open.
The new Picture Perfect will open in early March in what's currently the Scentchips space.
The lease for Scentchips was going to be up later this year. Since the McKissicks wanted that space, the owners of Scentchips decided to close early. They'll be out of the building by Sunday.

It's not what you think
A new business is coming to the former Chill Gelato space at 2404 N. Maize Road, and though it may at first sound like another place for frozen treats, it's not.
That's why owner Joni Berblinger Stolz is adding a tagline to the name of her store: Frozen in Time, A Scrapbook Boutique .
A scrapbooker herself, Stolz decided to turn her hobby into a business.
The store will have everything someone needs to make a scrapbook, including a variety of classes.
The store will be open seven days a week.
Monday through Friday, it will be open until 8 p.m. to attract shoppers who maybe can't make it earlier in the day.
Look for Frozen in Time to open in mid-March.
Don Piros of Landmark Commercial Real Estate handled the deal.
