The My Pinata store on Washington Street in West Roxbury will be closing at the end of December.
Operated by the mother and daughter duo of Luisa Plasencia, 56, and Maria Luisa Plasencia, 30, the business will continue to make pinatas by special order by contacting the business via email or phone.
"We moved back in June – the new space is great. We lost a lot of clientele from the corner to here," said Maria Luisa. The store moved from 5270 to 5252 Washington Street, but was closed for three months while opening in the new location.
While holding her son Franklin, 11 months, Maria said, "We cut all the costs and will use cellphones to take orders. We’re closing for good at the end of decemeber. We’ll do a couple from home."
"We’re going to start looking for jobs," said Maria.
Luisa is a well-known dressmaker in the area, and said she's already got feelers out to local bridal businesses.
Added Luisa, "For this type of store you have to be the owner. We were losing a lot of money and energy with all the stuff this past year."
