Bye Bye, Broadway

2020 was a stinker, for sure, and while HWGA has survived, we’ve not been immune to its ravages. Trying to find balance during all this has been a huge challenge. 

My friends, I must close our Broadway location at the end of this month. Our last day open at Broadway will be Saturday, January 30th, 2021.

You know me, and know that I would not make such a decision in haste. I’ve been fighting this outcome for 10 months, and I simply cannot sustain both locations. It’s a difficult and sad decision. I’m doing this to ensure HWGA’s survival-we are NOT going out of business.

If you’re a consignor at Broadway, you should already have received an email this week about how we’re handling the transfer.

This may be a bumpy month, but thank you for continuing to support us by shopping at Johns Landing, on our website and on our Facebook Live Sales. Please know how grateful I am for your support in all its forms.

xoxo ~chris

p.s. During this month, business will continue as usual, please come say hi!

p.p.s. If this news makes you sad, here’s something to help.

Author: Chris Gauger

Chris is a self-confessed resale fashionista. A fashion recycler from an early age, she learned the consignment business from her mother, Jan Gauger, at omt divine resale in Lincoln, Nebraska. Chris moved to Portland, Oregon in 1990 and immediately felt at home, among her people. She started Here We Go Again Deluxe Resale Boutique in 1992 and has never looked back. The second location of her store opened in 1997. Chris loves pretty much everything about clothes and fashion, but she has a serious boot and shoe addiction that is fed by the two stores. It's doubtful she will ever be recovered. In addition to clothes, Chris loves mentoring young women and teaching them about what it takes to run and manage a small business. She has employed some pretty remarkable women over the years and is grateful for all they've done to help grow Here We Go Again. She is a Hoosier by birth, but was raised in Nebraska. She has two sisters who continue to run the consignment store there, and one brother who has sense enough to stay out of the way. Her husband of twenty-seven years, is a land use planner and the fix-anything-guru that Chris relies upon more often than she'd like.
