Unfortunately willows gallery will be closing its doors at this location at the end of the day on Sunday December 1st. As much as we would like to stay open through Christmas this was simply not an option offered to us. As most of you know the Children’s Play Gallery will be taking our space. For those of you who like to pay to play with your kids we recommend you do not read on.
To achieve the goal of opening their doors on January 1st we were given a month to be out. We would like to thank the new owners of the play gallery for a free month of rent and the extra week. We hope this will help make up the lost revenue that not only willows gallery, but also and most importantly our 20 plus artists will miss out on over the holiday season.
willows gallery has made huge leaps and bounds over the past 2 years, and as most retailers do, we were poised to make our first profit in just under 2 years. We will miss this opportunity and the goal of setting record sales for all of our artists. Our artists have been very successful here thanks to you all and the creative personal art they all master in. No matter where you go you will never have an experience like the one you have found when you visit willows gallery. Just ask willow!
We are trying desperately to relocate. As we hunt for a new location we seem to run into the same problem. Building owners wanting way more coin than small businesses can afford. If the space was worth so much, then why would it stay empty for so long? HELLOOooo!?!
Because of this we may have to close permanently on December 2nd.
This is where you come in, those of you who are just as sad as we are. We love having a space where you can come in, relax and enjoy. If you want us to push to stay open please let us know. Any suggestions of a location are more than welcome, even outside of Oconomowoc. If you think willows gallery is a fantastic fit for your community send us an e-mail or give us a call. If you are a building owner looking for a creative tenant and want something where you can experience different let us know.
If you are planning to do some holiday shopping at willows gallery stop in soon! Our artists have been bringing in new art and new fair trade items have been arriving weekly. We are here with the most irreplaceable gifts you will find!
Heads Up! We will be closed on Thanksgiving Day! We hope that everyone will stay home and enjoy great food, family, friends, American football and not shop at the big box stores who regularly piss on their employees.
peace, love and cheers to a Thanksgiving Day off!
Thank you all for your support of willows gallery! We miss you already!
