7th Avenue Boutique


Heads up, fans of the 7th Avenue Boutique. Tomorrow’s the last day you’ll be able to access the shop at its current location (the corner of Granville and Duke). But stay calm: The shop re-opens at an ever-so-convenient new location, amid the Barrington Place Shops, November 20. (The boutique’s new digs, beside Hatley Clothing, used to house love emporium Mr. Romance.) 7th Avenue, which specializes in reasonably priced “new and nearly new” fashions (including in-season duds sold back to the shop through consignment, as well as brand-new overstocked and discontinued lines), first opened eight years ago on Hollis Street, and relocated to Granville in 2004. Shop owner Margaret Ann Kerr is hoping the boutique’s new location will make the shop easier for customers to access---and notice. The windows at the Granville location were tinted, and set back from the street. “It was very easy to just kind of walk by the shop and not see it at all,” she says. Plus, there’s now a parking lot right next to the shop, which means that consignors looking to sell their (stylish, in-season) wardrobe back to the shop won’t have far to lug their garment bags. Name brands available at the boutique include Anne Taylor, Ralph Lauren and more: “There’s probably over 600 lines at any one time in that store,” says Kerr. “Women can shop there, and they can find some great buys...but yet, they can still look totally in style.” Check out the shop at
