A Mayfair mainstay is relocating to the village of Wauwatosa area after the mall asked the shop to move to make way for a new retailer, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
After 29 years in Mayfair, bath and beauty products shop Soaps & Scents will close its doors on Aug. 25 and open a new location by Sept. 6 at 7600 Harwood Ave.
Mayfair is set to welcome Nordstrom in fall 2015, and to accommodate the new department store, the mall wanted Soaps & Scents to move to a less desirable space, owner Karen Tibbitts told the Journal.
During negotiations, Mayfair only offered "an unfavorable
location" along a side hallway, and a second-floor space too large to be used by the retailer.
