April Scott, the new general manager at Lofty Lou’s, shows her appreciation for Lou Andersen, right, on Thursday in Placerville. Andersen began telling regular customers earlier this year that she was ready to retire and close down the knitting store but 25 of the regulars couldn’t imagine life without the place, so they acquired it and persuaded Andersen to join their partnership. The group will take over as co-owners on Jan. 1.
