To Our Community: A Difficult Decision About Our Future
It is with heavy hearts that we write to you today to announce that after 7.5 years in Williamsburg, we will be closing our doors permanently soon. It is a difficult decision and one we do not take lightly. The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted our business greatly and it no longer makes sense for us to continue operating in this environment.
We opened in 2013 with a mission to champion art in fashion and we expanded our offering exponentially each year as we’ve grown. Our passion for interesting design outside of mainstream fashion led to many great collaborations and evolutions of our space. The meaningful relationships we've formed along the way with clients, staff and designers will remain the best part of our experience running the store. We are very proud of the unique retail environment and community we built at SWORDS-SMITH and heartbroken to see it end so abruptly.
It's been our great pleasure to serve the creative community over the years. Thank you to everyone for shopping with us and for all your support. Thank you for allowing us to take risks when we carried unconventional items from unconventional designers. Thank you for seeking to discover, for being curious, for having a voice and an individual point of view. And lastly, our regular clients really showed up for us during this pandemic - we saw you and we appreciate you so much.
Thank you for everything! We would love to see you again before we close. If you are in the Brooklyn area, please come by and say hello :)
Thank you again for all your support over the years. With every ending comes a new beginning and we hope to see you again on our next journey.
