There are those of us in St. Louis who have been bummed for months over the impending close of our favorite accessory mecca Melanie’s- 10277 Clayton Rd 63124. After 30 years in business, owner Melanie Bascom announced her retirement earlier this year (here). Well, friends today I heard some news that made my frown turn upside down! After careful consideration and overwhelming support from loyal customers, Melanie’s will remain open. According to Bascom, ” I am happy to let you know that we are going to spruce up the store with a new, younger attitude and spirit. But please know it will remain the Melanie’s we all love, with the quality merchandise, great prices and personalized customer service you’ve come to expect from us.” Sounds good to me! To welcome us all back, Melanie’s is holding a big storewide sale on May 31st! Mark your calendars because it’s sure to be HANTASTIC! See you there!
