It is with a heavy heart that I announce the closure of Mrs Jones Bridal Boutique. After 7 successful years, I have decided to close the business at the end of November 2017 for family reasons.
Mrs Jones Bridal Boutique was my baby when I set it up from an empty unit in December 2010. After quitting my ‘normal’ job in marketing, I wanted to create a vibrant, welcoming and premium environment to offer bridal gowns and accessories. After 7 years of trading, with last year being our most successful to date, I believe I have achieved my vision experiencing immense job satisfaction along the way. For all those people who have become ‘Mrs Jones Brides’ over the years (700+), I want to say thank you for supporting us. Your cards and positive comments have been hugely appreciated and helped us shape the business along the way.
As many of you may know I have a beautiful daughter Libby. She is now 3 and I have found juggling motherhood commitments with those of my brides and the business, increasingly challenging. Working every weekend and always being available to my customers has enabled me to build up our great reputation, but has also sadly been at the detriment to family life and so before my daughter starts school next year, I want to enjoy more time with her.
All brides who have wedding dresses on order for next year have personally been spoken to by myself and it doesn’t affect anyone marrying this year. No one will be disappointed and every order will be fulfilled. The closure is purely a personal decision at the end of my lease.
Because of the closure, we will be holding a huge sample sale to sell off our display dresses. We have some beautiful dresses instore and this is the perfect opportunity to purchase a high quality, beautiful dress at half the usual selling price. Please get in touch to book an appointment to try on the dresses as we will still be offering our expert service and advice. Each dress has been checked over and snagged by my seamstress and any marks or scuffs cleaned so they really are in excellent condition. There is only one of each so do hurry particularly if you have already seen something you like!
Thank you again to everyone who has helped me make the business great. This has been a very hard and emotional decision and I hope you can understand my reasons. I will still be in the area and hope to see you all at various children’s soft play/local supermarkets as I often do.
I will take some time out with regards to work but my entrepreneurial spirit won’t be suppressed forever I am sure so watch this space!
With very best wishes
