Dear Masque & Pettycote Customers
It is with regret that we are announcing the closure of our storefront Location at 620 Legion Way. Due to extreme health circumstances we are unable to maintain the storefront at this time.
Our owner is under treatment for kidney failure and is awaiting a kidney transplant; timing of which is uncertain. We plan to put the business on mothballs for the time being with the intention of reopening at a later date.
For the time being we will continue to be open for reduced hours: Thursdays 1-6, Fridays 1-6 Saturdays 1-6.
We hope to be able to serve you in a reduced capacity for rentals, custom work and alterations while we reposition ourselves. This will be on an appointment only basis. Location to be determined.
As we prepare to close the storefront we will be announcing sales as we must reduce some of our stock. We will be selling our tuxedo stock, select costume pieces and accessories, formal wear and many contemporary clothing pieces. Please keep an eye on our media for dates.
We will be eliminating our storefront retail but please check out our Etsy page for any current sale items at Masque & Pettycote. https://www.etsy.com/shop/MasqueandPettycote
Continue to follow us on Facebook where we will alert you of our activities and any future plans for the shop. Please contact us for any needs at firstname.lastname@example.org or 360-280-9141.
We sincerely thank you for your support for our little business venture and we hope to be able to continue serving the Olympia area’s costume needs in the future.
