On August 31, 2015, The Boston Tea Room in Wyandotte closed it’s doors. The following is a note from the family written in July 2015 about the future of the Boston Tea Room:
“The only constant in life is change”
For many months now, we (Carole, Vanessa, and Heatherleigh) have been having deep and interesting conversations with one another, and with the rest of our family, about where we see ourselves in the future. While all three of us love and value our long history with Boston Tea Room, and with the amazing community of people who have become part of lives as a result of it, we have also come to realize that our lives are changing, and that in order to pursue what’s next for us individually and as a family, that means that the Boston Tea Room will be changing, as well.
Effective August 31st, the Boston Tea Room will be closing it’s Wyandotte shop, and joining forces with our Ferndale store, so that we can better focus our efforts on one single location, offering the best possible experience for our customers and our awesome team. Historically, Boston Tea Room has had locations in downtown Detroit, Greektown, even Windsor, Ontario, so while we do get around, leaving Wyandotte is something we’d never considered seriously before now. But times have changed, and this move will allow Carole to enjoy her retirement more fully, and will give Vanessa and Heatherleigh the opportunity to work side by side, co-creating one of Michigan’s most creative and unique specialty shops and offering world class products, services, and events.
Naturally, we’ll still be available for private events and parties in the Downriver area and beyond – that won’t change, and of course we’re looking forward to seeing many of you at our Ferndale shop. We’re also committed to making sure you’ll still be able to book sessions with your favorite Reader, whether in person, over the phone, or via email, so be sure to visit our website to keep up to date with all the changes, as they happen. We also have a few more classes, workshops and special events coming up over this final few weeks, so be sure to keep up with our Facebook page for all the details.
While we are understandably sad to be saying goodbye to so many amazing Wyandotte friends and neighbors, whose support has meant the world to us for the past thirty-plus years, we are also excited for what the future holds, and hope you will be with us on the journey! Much love and many thanks for your friendship, your support, and your love over the years.
With much love, and deep gratitude for your friendship and support over the past 33 years,
Carole, Vanessa, & Heatherleigh
