Joyce Locks has consolidated her three Hatsational storefronts into two. The remaining stores are located at 508 and 510 Broadway in downtown Saratoga Springs, in the Algonquin Building near the Saratoga City Center.
The lease was up on the third store, but was not renewed to cut costs.
“It will put me in a stronger position to come out on the other side of this pandemic, if I scale down to two stores for now,” said Locks. “As my lease came due, I had this vision that we wouldn’t open anytime soon. Then when you consider there are no conventions, no weddings, no concerts, no racetrack,” she said. “My business is driven by all of those factors.”
“I intend to survive this, and this is the best way for me to come out strong. We can always open a third store another time,” said Locks.
