Monday’s Child for Sale — Classic Children’s Clothing Store Will Go Out of Business Unless Someone Buys It | News Release | Monday’s Child


Dear Friends of Monday’s Child,

The time has come for me to leave Monday’s Child.  This has been a difficult decision for me to make, but because of family and personal concerns it has to be made.  I have been the owner of this lovely boutique for over 12 years, and have loved every minute of it.  Monday’s Child has an enviable reputation and a large, wonderful customer base.  I have told many customers that working here is like working in a doll house.  The boutique’s history of over 38 years in Old Town is hard to walk away from, but it is time for me to do so.

I know that many of you will be greatly disappointed and I am very sorry about that.  I want you to know it has been a delight to meet all of you and help dress your children and choose gifts for the special children in your lives.

So, I am once again asking if there is anyone in our community that is interested in taking over this venture.  Rather than putting a price on the business, I am looking for someone who just wants to take it over and give their own personal touch to it.  If you or anyone you know might be interested, please have them contact me as soon as possible.

In the meantime, I will be reducing inventory with sales to your benefit.  Beginning Tuesday August 21st, everything in the shop will be on sale at 35% off.  If a new owner is not found by the end of September, Monday’s Child will close its door.

If you have a store credit, either in your possession of if we are holding it here at the shop for you, please come in and redeem it in merchandise.  The same goes for gift certificates.

Thank you all for many years of patronage.  It’s been my pleasure!

Warm regards,

Melinda Lynam
