Retiring a story

Just a quick question before I go off to help with Thanksgiving dinner (mmmm): how do you decide when it's time to retire a story? I have one I wrote a year and a half ago, and I know it's not as good as what I'm writing now, but it's only been to a few places because the last one held it for several months. I'm tempted to archive it because I don't imagine it'll get into anything even semi-pro, but on the other hand I don't like giving up on things, especially when this one hasn't had much of a chance.

Thoughts?
