Capitol Hill next month is set to lose a store that has sold wigs of seemingly all sizes, colors and styles for more than a decade on Pennsylvania Avenue SE.
Kay Wigs at 325 Pennsylvania Ave. SE is slated to close Oct. 31, after losing its lease, shop owner Kay Kim said today. Kim’s landlord is planning to sell the building that has housed the store in its basement for 13 years, she said.
Kim, who started her business in the 1970s, said she is looking to sell wigs by mail or at another location following her store’s closure. But for now, she is offering discounts of 20 to 75 percent off on wigs, as well as the jewelry, hats and other accessories that she sells.
