After four and a half years at 2236 NW Market Street, the children’s boutique Mon Petit Shoe is closing.
Owner Tiffany Lysene tells us that the tough economy is the key reason that they’re closing. “We spend so much time with the business,” Lysene says, “It just doesn’t make sense to continue if we aren’t making money.”
Lysene is active with the In Ballard Merchants Association and will continue to work with that organization. She also runs a manufacturing business that will keep her busy once the store is closed.
For the next couple of weeks everything in the store will be 30-percent off. After that the deals will get better and better. The store will officially close on December 21st.
Ballard Ave Pub will replace the shoe store. They recently applied for a restaurant/lounge liquor license. According to the license application, the license is “to sell spirits, beer, and wine by the individual serving for on-premises consumption. In this case, less than 50 percent of the establishment is dedicated to dining.”
