“We live in extraordinary times. Times that, to be certain, have never felt as uneasy as the ones we’re now facing as a community, as a nation, and as one interconnected world.

For almost 50 years Folklorica has had the privilege to serve the Boston community and beyond — introducing the world’s top designers into your daily lives. So if you’re reading this email, there’s a very good chance we know you by name and feel as close to you as our own family.

In the spirit of this culture, we are prioritizing the health and well-being of our employees, customers, and the larger public health of Massachusetts and have decided to temporarily close our doors at 61 Union Street in Newton Centre to prevent the spread of COVID-19 through Monday, March 30. We will continue to reassess the situation and may decide to extend this date further.

While our store is closed, we will make new merchandise available to purchase online. We’ll send a follow-up email with this new way to support Folklorica — after all, we still think we can be helpful if:

  • Your sister’s birthday trip was canceled, but her birthday isn’t.
  • Your anniversary vacation is canceled, but your relationship is still going strong.
  • Your conference is canceled, but the connections you were hoping to deepen still matter.

For these reasons and more, we’re still here. And remember that when you shop locally you make a big impact in the community.”
