Mona Williams is closing its Northeast boutique

Clothing boutique Mona Williams is closing after more than three years in the Nicollet Island-East Bank neighborhood.

“After three and a half years, we are closing our [Northeast] location and concentrating on our Mall of America store. We love [Northeast], and hope to find another space nearby, but our current University Ave location will close at the end of September,” said owner Patric Richardson, who also teaches laundry classes as The Laundry Evangelist, on Facebook.

The store is one of the last retail locations along its block with the recent additions of PinKU, which replaced Primrose Park, Stem Wine Bar & Eatery and JL Beers. The stretch of University Avenue is also home to New Bohemia, Keegan’s Pub and a Jimmy John’s location.

Richardson expanded the business to the Mall of America earlier this year. The store is on the first level near Nordstrom.

Mona Williams at 18 University Ave. NE will close at the end of September. The original store is offering a half-off sale on apparel, shoes and bags.
