To all of our valued customers and friends in Kendall Square:
We are sad to report that our store on Third Street will be closed as of June 15th. We have lost our lease, as our landlord tried to nearly double our rent. We have been successful and profitable at this location since opening 5 years ago, but simply cannot afford that sort of increase. We are searching for a new location, and do hope to reopen in the near future – we’ll keep you updated on any news to report.
Most importantly, we want to thank each of our customers for their support over the years, and thank you for sharing in our joy and our journey each day. Without you, we obviously would never have been here. Your enthusiasm and excitement have kept us going, and it has been such fun to share all of our new items with you as they arrived. We’ve loved getting to know you, your kids and families, and your dogs. We hope that you’ve enjoyed having us around for all of your gift-buying needs, and we hope to see you again soon…regardless of where we end up, Kendall Square will always be our birthplace and the home of our heart.
If you have any comments or questions, we’d always love to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org.
