We have good news and bad about Seventh Avenue shop LollyPOP Vintage.

First, the bad: Owner Heather Powers announced that she'll close the Phoenix boutique Sunday, May 26.

But fans of the shop shouldn't fret, because the store won't really be gone. Powers plans to open an online shop, still under the LollyPOP Vintage banner, around the same time her brick-and-mortar location shutters. Slated for the fall is another online shop with Powers at the helm, Peacock & Preen, which will carry menswear exclusively.

"We may open another one someday but right now I would like to concentrate on other things like traveling the country picking fabulous vintage for the online store, getting together a repro line, taking some classes and maybe even actually becoming a decent blogger," Powers wrote in her announcement about the store closing. "I have been blessed with my store dream coming true and now it's time to make room for more dreams and adventures."

Say adios to LollyPOP's Phoenix digs when the shop hosts a farewell party and sale on Saturday, May 25.
