Children’s retail store Tiny You for sale, owner leaving New York

July 7, 2017 By Jason Cohen

The owner of a children’s boutique in Long Island City is in the process of selling her store.

Jill Callan, the owner of Tiny You, is selling her 10-50 Jackson Avenue children’s clothing store since she is leaving New York and moving to Colorado at the end of the month.

She said her goal is to sell the business, rather than shut it down.

To date, she said she has received three serious inquiries, two from people who wish to keep the business going as is.

Callan, who has designed clothes for nearly 20 years, opened Tiny You in Sunnyside in 2010 and eventually relocated to Jackson Avenue in 2013. Since then, numerous customers have become friends and regulars in the store, she said.

“People are like, ‘No you can’t leave,’” she said. “I’m actively looking for someone to buy it.”

She said that business is getting stronger, noting that she had a 20 percent increase in sales last year.

“I love what I do,” Callan said. “This business is going really well.”

However, she said she is drawn to the Colorado lifestyle and has family out there. She is contemplating opening a similar children’s story once she is settled.

Callan said that if she doesn’t sell her business by the end of the month, someone will manage it and she will operate it remotely. Ultimately, she hopes the business stays in Long Island City.

“It’s something the community needs,” she said.
