Legend has it that Dr. Seuss once said, "Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened."

So we're reaching for our smiles as we share that due to the long-term effects of the coronavirus pandemic, Poughkidsie will be closing permanently. We are honored to have been a part of your family's birthday parties and have treasured memories of walk-in visits, holiday workshops, trivia nights, crafting classes, trick-or-treating, egg hunts, and so much more.

These 6 years have been an absolute blast and a true gift, and we remain grateful to have been part of your lives and of the Hudson Valley small business community. We will miss you all, and we welcome you to share a favorite memory or photo with us on Facebook.

Stay safe and be well, with love and socially-distant hugs,

The Poughkidsie Family
