Victoria’s boutique beauty boutique to close by the end of September
Victoria’s Beauty Boutique has announced it will close its doors on September 13.
The shop, located at 2 Richmond St, has been the home of the Victoria’s Beauties shop since its inception in 2009.
“Victoria’s Beauty will be closed on September 15, 2017.
This will be our last year of operating at the Victoria Fairgrounds and we will be closing our doors at the end as we have become too much of a burden on our staff,” said co-owner Claire Worsley.
Ms Worsleys family are a longtime supporter of the Fairground and will be supporting the community through the closure.
Victoria’s Beautie’s shop is located at Victoria Fairground.
There is also a new Beauty Boutiquery opening at Victoria’s Fairground in October, which will also focus on women’s cosmetics.
As a result of the closures, the Victoria Beauty boutique will be hosting a special Beauty Walk to benefit Victoria’s Breast Cancer charity.
Victoria’s beauty boutique has been owned by WorsLEY, her sister-in-law, Sarah Smith, and a team of designers and stylists.
In addition to providing high-quality beauty and accessories, the boutique also offers a wide range of private and commercial beauty consultations.
Worsleys sister-on-the-spot hair stylist, Angela McArthur, said the family felt it was important to provide a safe space for their customers to come in and feel comfortable about being seen by their stylists, makeup artists and even hair stylists without feeling pressured.
She said that while the Victoria boutique is closing, the owners and staff would continue to work to offer a more professional experience for clients.
‘We were all doing it for our children’ The sisters were not only passionate about the business, but also passionate about their children, she said.
Their son was diagnosed with breast cancer two years ago and is now undergoing treatment at St George’s Hospital.
He has now had surgery on his breast, Ms McArthur said.
“It’s really hard for him to leave us because he knows that his dad would love him and he’s going to love him,” Ms McArthsons sister-only son told News Corp Australia.
“He has seen us struggle with cancer, but he loves Victoria.
We are so proud of him and so proud to have been able to work with him.”
Ms McArthons sister, who has been a part of the brand since she was a child, has also grown up supporting Victoria’s Children’s Charity.
Since being approached by News Corp, she has been involved in a number of fundraising initiatives and has raised over $40,000 for the charity.
“The beauty industry is one of the biggest industries in Australia and is the biggest employer in Victoria,” she said, adding that she was particularly passionate about bringing more young people into the beauty industry.
“I think there’s a lot of great opportunities for young girls, so I’m really hoping that the Beauty Boutiques can help us change the perception of beauty.”
The owners of the boutique, who have been in the business for more than 30 years, have said they are looking to expand into the cosmetics industry.
They said the business has grown by about 15 per cent each year since the launch of the store, which was the result of their love for the beauty and beauty products.
But while the owners hope to continue to support the community, the closure will not affect the Victoria Beauties team.
“We are looking forward to the day that we can go out into the world, and to work in the cosmetics world,” said Worslesons sister.
