It was back in 2009 that Alexis Mahoney first opened the doors at Boutique Joliette (1870 Hollis Street), an indie jewellery and accessories shop that has since grown to offer a wide range of beautiful things. But this week is your final chance to get your mitts on any of them—with a move to Toronto on the horizon, Mahoney will close up shop after April 8. But until then, she’ll be keeping regular hours (Monday-Saturday, 10am-6pm) and everything must go—all the vintage and locally made jewellery, Canadian clothing, wedding-inspired accessories, hats, bags, scarves as well as vintage furniture and lighting is for sale. Joliette is also clearing out fixtures, display cases, cabinets and (attention small biz owners) shop supplies. “The outpouring of support with my closing announcement has been astounding,” says Mahoney. “I’m really going to miss all my amazing customers, they feel like an extended family and it makes me sad to know that it’s ending.”
