What our Allentown location closing means to you


After having a brick and mortar store in Allentown for 5 years, it's only natural that we would get a lot of questions about moving and altering our business model. First and most importantly, We want to point out that it's only the boutique that is closing. Ju-Ju Monkey is not closing...we're shifting our focus to our classes and our community, which have always been the heart of our tribe.

We are auctioning off our BIG ORANGE CHAIR. You can register for the auction here and then place your bids here. The auction will end on July 1st at noon. The highest bid closest, but not past noon Eastern gets to take home an icon of what this tribe is all about.

     



We are also auctioning off the colorful DROP CLOTH that is covered in memories from many of our art classes. You can register for the auction here and then place your bids here. The auction will end on July 1st at noon. The highest bid closest, but not past noon Eastern gets to take home an icon of what this tribe is all about.

We are also auctioning off the smaller section of orange carpet in the classroom area. This is the section that has carpet foam and is closest to the retail side of the store. You can register for the auction here and then place your bids here. The auction will end on July 1st at noon. The highest bid closest, but not past noon Eastern gets to take home an icon of what this tribe is all about.

Consignment
  • If you have items in consignment and you want them back please pick them up before June 7th. After June 7th they become property of ju-ju monkey. 
  • We will issue your final payment in store credit on June 8th.
Discounts
We see how people are discussing the closure of Toys R Us and other businesses, big and small and it is sad to hear the disappointments regarding discounts. The expectation, it seems, is that these businesses should be giving things away at a major loss. We hope our tribe can understand that we will not be able to offer our products for pennies on the dollar during this transition.
Online & Shipping
  • Any items you see online will be available for shipping. While our inventory will be greatly reduced going forward, our curated selection will continue to be available online and at Let's Play Books.
  • We can not guarantee our inventory will be accurate during our Allentown closure. We will do our best though!
