The time has come for Pointe Shoe Patti to retire from the dance retail world and close the store after serving the seacoast dance community for 19 years. This decision was made with a heavy heart and did not come easily. I am excited to say that I am now a two-time Grandma, “Noki” and have 4 treasured step grandchildren whom I absolutely love and adore! They all live up in Maine and I want to spend precious time with them before they have grown up and I’ve missed any of their milestones! My husband “Groot” who has been working in either Atlanta GA or Columbus Ohio since 1998, is now working from home, believe it or not, I want to spend quality time with him too!
The current global supply chain issues are causing an inability to get the products I need to guarantee a proper fit. Couple this with the fact that I just cannot find employees to work, which results in no one to cover the floor during normal business hours while I am fitting pointe shoes or visiting my children and grandchildren. The stars have aligned, and I realize it’s time to for me to “Close The Barre". As much as I love what I do and have put my whole heart into fitting you, my valued customers, I am beyond excited for my next adventure of being retired and a full-time grandma!!!
I want to take a moment to open my heart and give thanks to all of you, my wonderful, dedicated, loyal customers, employees, friends and all my family. There is no doubt I could not have been so successful without you!! You will always be a part of who I am, the stories that I tell my grandchildren and mostly my precious memories of my life at TwinkleToes!!
