Soaps.com has learned that actress Lauralee Bell, who played Christine Blair on The Young and the Restless, has made the decision to close her boutique, On Sunset, after five years in business.

When Soaps.com last spoke with Lauralee, she made mention of how the economy was affecting shopping habits. On November 2, she officially announced that the boutique, located in Los Angeles’ prominent Sunset Plaza, will close as of December 1.

In her announcement, Lauralee explained that she planned to close the store because juggling the duties of running a boutique with the demands of a family and a show business career were too taxing.

Soaps.com wishes Lauralee continued success with her web series, Family Dinner, and we still hope to someday see her reprise her role on Y&R. Soaps.com readers can visit On Sunset online – who knows, there may be a bargain to be had!
