After 81 years serving the Abingdon community and beyond, the team at Marie Boutique are sorry to announce they will be closing the doors for the last time in September. Marie was established in 1936 as a traditional Corsetry and Underwear shop in Abingdon, Oxfordshire, and has evolved under owner Amanda Prior into a destination boutique and website Pure Marie for lingerie, fashion and accessories from around the globe. Over the years, Marie has established a loyal customer base, through a dedicated and specialist bra fitting service.
Despite a dedicated search, to date no potential owner has been found to build on the longstanding heritage. After 30 years at the helm of Marie, Amanda is looking forward to spending more time with her family, whilst Verity will be moving on to a new challenge near her home in Winchester.
