Letter from the Owner

by Nikki Gillette

This was the hardest day of my last 13 years….

For the health and safety of my staff, customers, and community, I’ve decided to temporarily close all four storefronts of Lee&Birch effective today.
We will be moving all of our sales to the website and will be working diligently to increase our offering online.

This is an incredibly difficult and emotional decision. Please know, I did not make it lightly. I’ve lost hours of sleep, cried so many tears, and consulted with anyone I could.
As hard as it is, I’m confident it is the best decision for those I love and for our community. For my incredible employees who are amazingly kind and hard working women; for my loyal customers who support us endlessly; and for our neighbors far and wide.
I hope that you are still able to support us and the other incredible small businesses that are impacted. I will post more specifics on different ways to support once I have time to wrap my mind around this more, but if you would like to support now, we have gift certificates available to purchase on our website and we are adding new styles as we can.
At this point I don’t know how long the temporary closure will last, but we will keep you up to date daily via social media and email.

Stay healthy and safe.
