In sad to report news, adorable Alberta boutique Abrahams & Duffy have decided to close their doors. A press release from the owners sums up the situation:
Dear friends and family of Abrahams & Duffy,
After two amazing and wonderful years on NE Alberta Street, abrahams&duffy is closing.
This decision has been made out of love and respect - for each other, our families, our vendors, and our customers.
If the walls of 2215 NE Alberta could talk, they would tell about how the boutique started by two great friends quickly became a second home and a source of connectivity for our friends and neighbors.
Looking back, we are so proud to have held strong in our decision to support lines made domestically and/or sustainably. We strove to bring you garments that were both beautifully designed and ethically produced. We built relationships with artists, designers, tourists, grandmothers, neighbors, and the countless passersby who wandered into the shop.
To each of you who helped us make our boutique dreams come true, thank you, we loved every minute of it.
So, why close? For us, it’s simply time for a shift in priorities to accommodate growing families and new ventures. Going forward, Daisy will dedicate more time to her two daughters and event-based floral design business, Wildwood Flowers. Marissa has already returned to her food and beverage industry roots and is enjoying having weekends free to spend with her family.
We aren’t going anywhere. We are still dedicated to supporting this city’s strong community of independent designers and local businesses. We are both still living life and raising children (just a few blocks from each other).
If we have unfinished business with you, we would like to wrap things up by mid August. Please call the shop and talk with Daisy about getting square.
As time gets closer to our final day in business, Saturday, August 10th, please continue to follow the shop on Facebook and Instagram for any updates or changes, images of what’s on sale, and of course our famous selfies.
Take a look at the insanely good sale schedule we have planned out for our last weeks in business!
