Announcing New Owners of Women & Children First

After sharing their plans to sell Women & Children First last October, Ann and Linda are thrilled to finally share this heartfelt news with the community. By selecting two of their colleagues--Lynn Mooney and Sarah Hollenbeck--to step into the roles of co-owners, friends of the store can rest assured that the store, though changing hands, will not be changing heart.

Please read a letter from Ann & Linda to our customers & friends of Women and Children First. And for more details about the new owners check out the press release.
