Wee Threads at 18 East Blithedale, Suite 12, closed in May 2014.

Wee Threads, the longtime purveyor of “recycled kid couture,” has closed its brick-and-mortar store at 18 East Blithedale Ave. (Suite 12) downtown in favor of selling exclusively online, according to a note posted on the store’s website by owner Teresa Gerould. Wee Threads had been in the space for seven years.

“May 2014 brings some exciting changes – we closed our retail brick-n-mortar shop to more effectively tend to our ever-growing online sales,” Gerould wrote. “We are ‘turning the corner’ and growing in this new direction, due to less overhead costs, time constraints, and a multitude of other factors; basically downsizing operations while at the same time maximizing profits. We want to be where retail is headed – online sales as convenient as your mobile device!”

Gerould wrote that details about Wee Threads’ new online operation are forthcoming.

Mike Walsh of Walsh Construction Company, which owns the building at 18 East Blithedale Avenue, said he’s looking for a new tenant for the space. The 750-square-foot space is zoned for retail use. Interested parties can reach out to Walsh at 415.383.2727.
