We now look forward to serving South Lake Tahoe shoppers at the Carson City location and other Pier 1 stores,” Pier 1 Imports spokeswoman Whitney Rogers said in an e-mail.

The store is the latest in a string of closures at the South Shore. Other businesses that closed last month include Fire & Rain Galleries and Maison Rustique.
