The Oprah Store on the Near West Side will be closing when the queen of talk wraps up her show after 25 years, Harpo Inc. confirms.

The 5,500-square-foot retail store, which opened in 2008, sells items that reflect Oprah Winfrey's style and the topics she discusses in her show.

An Oprah kiosk at Water Tower Place will also close. Similar retail outlets at O'Hare and Midway have already been shut down.

In addition, Oprah's online store will also cease to exist.
