JOY all things underthings Employees Purchase Boutique
The assets of JOY all things underthings, a full-service bra fitting and lingerie store in Manchester Center, Vermont in business since June 2013, have been sold to Julie Isaacs and Katherine MacLauchlan, two long-time employees.
“Julie and Katherine have a combined eight years experience at JOY and their contributions have been a large part of the success. They are a perfect combination to take over the retail operations and continue providing bra fitting expertise and women’s underpinnings selections in our beautiful town,” comments Joy Proft, JOY’s founder and owner.
The store will have a new name and branding. La Pêche Lingerie will open on March 1, 2019 after a 10-day renovation at JOY all things underthings’ same location of 4732 Main Street.
JOY’s last day of business is Monday, February 18. All JOY staff members have been offered jobs at La Pêche Lingerie and outstanding gift card and store credit balances from JOY will be honored at full value.
“We are thrilled with the opportunity to continue the high level of service and quality JOY started and to continue offering the best bra fitting and service in southern Vermont,” adds Katherine MacLauchlan.
JOY all things underthings gained national acclaim when it was named “Best Reference Store” at last year’s Best of Intima Awards in New York City.
