Dwellings On College Ave. Closes

Dwellings, a small boutique located at 358 E. College Ave (next to the Waffle Shop), announced it closed its downtown location yesterday and will be moving all of its merchandise to its Lewisburg location.

Dear Dwellings State College customers, we are sad to announce the closure of the State College store as of May 9th, 2017,” a sign posted on the window explains. “We have loved our time in State College and have appreciated your loyalty and your business!”

The boutique primarily sold clothes and accessories, including one of the only shops downtown that had ready-to-buy customized sorority items for sale. Those who are still interested in Dwellings’ goods can visit the Lewisburg storefront or the boutique’s online store.

There is no word yet as to what may take over the storefront, however a “for lease” sign popped up in the window earlier today so there may not be a plan just yet. We’ll keep you updated as information becomes available.
