Many many times…she would let me take home beautiful clothing for my daughters. ..trusting me that I would take care of payment. Thanking you so much for this…IYH, I would like to repay her by sponsoring funds in her Gemach, so that others too who don’t always have ; can dress their daughters in beautiful Tznious clothing.

Great store! We"ll miss you Simone

Whenever we come from Australia we would buy our children’s Yom Tov outfits from Simone. Such a nice,warm person. If only all storeowners were like Simone.
Hatzlocha with everything.

Simone’s has the best kids clothes! lots of treasures in there, and a great eye for fasions. and shoshana is so helpful- knows how to deal with picky parents, kvetchy kids, or hard to fit kids, and always had endless patience. Hope she stays on!

My mother took us to Simone’s in the 80’s as kids and I continue to shop there now as a mom myself. Simone, your store will be surely missed!

Simone! You are such a special woman. For so many years we shopped at your store and we always looked so beautiful in the stunning and tasteful dresses that you would select especially for us. we will miss you so much! Much Hatzlacha with all of the wonderful things you plan on doing. Simone is an example of a hardworker who never stops dreaming of how she can help other people. Thank you for all that you have done for the past 33 years!

to say THANK YOU SIMONE, is not enough
she was here while my dtr was growing up and always had a smile for me and her

she was not only the shop i went to for my dtr, but for my sons suits, and her kindness and hospitality in her home was evident in the store as well

your presence on kingston ave will be missed

Perhaps rather than just closing this really needed shop, the owner can sell the business as is with a bit of training to a new interested seller. If she can hold out a bit longer and meanwhile advertise and give a chance for someone else to run this successful business, it would continue to serve the community and also help a new entrepenuer.

Thank you Simone!

Thank you Simone!

On behalf of Shluchos throughout the world I would like to thank Simone for her help in enabling us to dress our children elegantly and more importantly Tzniusly. Simone was always sensitive to Shluchos who had tight budgets.
Thank you Simone!
A grateful Shlucha

While it is great that it won’t be wiped off the map, nobody would be able to replace Simone. She was so classy and sensitive to the needs of all of her customers, to the ones paying full price and otherwise…such a kind and respectful woman she is! Hashem should bentch her with everything good! Hatzlacha, yiddishe chassidishe nachas from her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren, health and much happiness!! Simone is irreplaceable!

such a shame

such a shame

We will truly miss the kindness and warmth that we got from simoes store always when e came in for tishrei we would love and look foward to the trip to simones although it might be taken over there is nothing that can replace the kindness and understaning of simone. I would like to wish her much success in the future.

very sad

I am very upset that the store is closing ,Shoshana was very helpful she always try to resolve the problem. I hope she will stay with the new management

I care

You always treated me very kindly. hatzlocho with all you do!

 THE STORE IS UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT!
Guest
THE STORE IS UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT!

While the accolades to Simone are certainly deserved it would be unfair to think of this store as a thing of the past. From the ads I see right here on COL it seems the store will remain open under new management.( It would have been only fair to point this out when posting this article.) Hopefully Simone will share some of her unparalleled expertise with the new management and the store can continue to function nicely and serve the neighborhood successfully.

proper expression
Guest
proper expression

the expression is not tznius. for example you do not say: to dress tznius.
the word is tznius’dik (or tzniusdik without an apostrophe).
for example you say: to dress tzniusdik.

in hebrew you say :lilbosh tzonuah (ืœืœื‘ื•ืฉ ืฆื ื•ืข) not lilbosh tznius( ืœืœื‘ื•ืฉ ืฆื ื™ืขื•ืช).
another example:ishah tznuah (ืืฉื” ืฆื ื•ืขื”)
not ishah tznius(ืืฉื” ืฆื ื™ืขื•ืช).
we should try to teach our children proper (not awkward)
expression.

Is your store still open?
