An alert “06880” reader passes along the news that Perfumerie Douglas will close all its U.S. stores, with Westport’s Main Street location shutting on Saturday, Sept. 18.
Blue Mercury is said to be moving into its space. Fortunately, it will fill downtown’s crying need for a makeup/skincare/spa place.
This information comes from the reader’s colleague, who heard it as she shopped at Douglas yesterday.
“Frankly,” the reader says, “I always found that store way too snooty for me.
She adds: “Perhaps the photo of the store providing air conditioning for all of downtown Westport through their open door this summer doomed them.”
That’s not exactly what “06880” had in mind when we urged Parfumerie Douglas to “close its doors.”
