Upper Montclair’s Sweat & Strut Hopes to Re-Open In Mid September

Wednesday, Sep 13, 2017 2:30pm

Sweat & Strut, Upper Montclair’s athletic-wear boutique, was forced to shut its doors on August 13 due to a strong smell that occurred during remodeling work being done in a space next door. Sweat & Strut needed to ensure that its space was healthy for customers and employees and hoped that after a week of airing out the space they would be able to reopen. However, owner Melissa Sowa-Legters is working diligently to correct any lingering issues and plans to reopen the doors very soon.

“This has been just devastating and exhausting emotionally,” says Sowa-Legters. “I was in the process of planning our One-year anniversary celebration and then this happened. This wasn’t anything I could have planned for or ever wanted. I can’t wait to get the door open again and see my awesome customers, and get them geared up in the best leggings available in North Jersey. I can’t begin to express my appreciation for the support and understanding I’ve received, and we will have that anniversary celebration. I look forward to being back better than ever, providing what was intended – women owned, high quality, athletic and leisure wear to our cherished clientele.“

Sweat & Strut will be participating in the Montclair Fashion Show in September 17th at the Wellmont Theater, and will also be showcasing some “pop-up” shops at various locations in the community.

Sad. Let's hope that this is not its "Last Tango." One of the most beautiful and iconic buildings in town. Valentino, Garbo, Keaton must have played there.
