Children's clothing retailer Hanna Andersson is closing at Mayfair
Children’s clothing retailer Hanna Andersson is set to close Sunday after four years in business at Mayfair mall.
A sign outside Hanna Andersson, a company known for its soft fabrics and the durability of the pajamas, dresses, jackets and other apparel for children, announced a 50% off sale and the Dec. 29 closing date.
The Mayfair Hanna Andersson store — the only one in Wisconsin — opened to considerable fanfare in October , the same day the high-end retailer Nordstrom debuted its first full-line department store in the state at the Wauwatosa shopping mall. Customers were lined up waiting to get into Hanna Andersson as well as Nordstrom, which is next door, when the two stores opened their doors to the public for the first time.
Portland, Oregon-based Hanna Andersson said at the time that demographic data from its online and catalog business made it confident it would have a strong base of customers in Wisconsin to support a store at Mayfair.
Although privately held Hanna Andersson doesn't disclose detailed financial information, the grand opening weekend at its Mayfair store was the most successful from a sales standpoint for any of its 47 other locations, the company said shortly after it opened.
A Mayfair spokeswoman said the mall does not comment on tenants.

Hanna Andersson, Edie Boutique in downtown Naperville out of business, Central Park Place exterior almost done
At least two more downtown Naperville businesses will not be reopening after being closed by the coronavirus pandemic, but exterior work is almost complete on the Central Park Place building, the four-story retail/residential complex going up around the old Nichols Library.
Joining them Hanna Andersson, the Scandanavian-inspired children’s clothing shop at W. Jefferson St., said Katie Wood, executive director of downtown Naperville Alliance.
The boutique store opened in and sold clothing and pajamas for babies, toddlers, boys, girls and family pajama sets.
Edie Boutique at 15 W. Jefferson Ave. will also not be coming back, Wood said. The building suffered water damage, Wood said.
The boutique store sold jewelry, handbags, clothing, gifts and other items.
Meanwhile, exterior construction continues on Central Park Place on Washington Street. The outside work is will likely be complete this summer, said Christina Caton Kitchel, a principal for Caton Commercial Real Estate Group.
A second retailer is lined up but they are not ready to announce its identity, Caton Kitchel said. If that lease goes through, there will be three tenants on the ground floor, she said.
Luxury condominiums will occupy the top three floors of the building.
The old Nichols Library itself is being marketed as restaurant space. The more than year-old building has a 1,square-foot patio, an in-demand amenity because of the social distancing guidelines in place as restaurants and bars open again under phases three and four of the governor’s Reopen Illinois plan, Caton Kitchel said.
And once plans were cemented earlier this year for Costco to bring its second store to Naperville on Ogden Avenue, other retailers and businesses are starting to follow suit, Caton Kitchel said. She’s working with a couple businesses that want to come to the area, including one eying the long-vacant Famous Dave’s restaurant.

The CEO Of Kids Clothing Company Hanna Andersson Has Resigned After Diversity Complaints From Staff
They described situations where they received angry messages from Edwards, or were forced by him to apologize, after criticizing diversity efforts at the company.
“If you don’t apologize,” he wrote to one former employee who said he should resign, “we’re going to war.”
Two former employees described an incident that occurred prior to Edwards joining the company in which photos taken of a Black family modeling a best-selling set of pajamas for the holiday catalog were reshot with a white family due to concerns from management that the Black family "wasn’t 'Hanna' enough."
Others objected to the "tone deaf" Instagram post the company had shared on May 31 amid riots in the wake of the death of George Floyd. The post featured a white father and daughter and preached the importance of kindness and "teaching our children to be soft in a world that can be very hard."
In the weeks since BuzzFeed News reported on the company's diversity issues, parents consistently flooded its Instagram posts with comments saying they would not buy from them again unless the CEO was removed.
Edwards did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Friday, but told BuzzFeed News in July that both he and Hanna Andersson strongly valued diversity and were taking steps to improve company culture. He also insisted he had never “lashed out” at any employee who had raised concerns about diversity.
"I know you’ve talked to nine people but we have and some people now left in the company and I’d say they beg to differ," he said.
Yeah .- only Andrey could find something to answer, leaving the chief's office. The next morning, my parents woke me up as usual and called me into their. Room. In their room, without wasting time, my father put his penis in my mouth and I began to suck him off.
