An upscale children’s clothing store is closing down its Sunnyside location to focus on its Long Island City operation.
Jill Callan, the owner of Tiny You, has decided to close her 46-21 Skillman Avenue store that she opened in Sept. 2010.
Callan, who expanded into Long Island City two years ago, will operate out of her 10-50 Jackson Avenue location.
The LIC store is twice the size of Callan’s Skillman Avenue location.
Callan said that the bigger space provides her with the ability to offer a greater product line. Furthermore, Long Island City is undergoing such a construction boom that the demand for children’s products continues to grow.
“My [Skillman Ave] lease ends July 31,st Callan said. “I wanted to stay. I live here but I want to focus on being in Long Island City and [selling] on line.”
She notified her customers recently about her impending Sunnyside departure.
“I wanted to let them know that the Jackson Avenue store is nearby,” Callan said.
The Skillman Avenue location will close during the last week of July.
