It’s not often that a store remains open for 10 years or even 20 years for that matter.
When you consider the relatively young age of Santa Clarita, and then compare that to the 35 years Margo’s has been open, it’s quite a feat.
Margo Miller-Hudson has owned her clothing store, which operates off of Lyons Avenue, since 1974 and has occupied unit 115 for the entire span.
Unfortunately, because of financial reasons the shop will be closing its doors forever, and the Santa Clarita Valley will lose a staple in the boutique clothing market.
“It’s very sad for me,” said Hudson. “We are very grateful for anybody who has supported us.”
When you look at the women working at Margo’s, their combined clothing experience adds up to more than 60 years of expertise.
That expertise is one of the main attractions to the store, but a number of community members have raved about the generosity of Hudson herself.
“Margo’s has been an institution here in the Santa Clarita Valley,” said Marlee Lauffer. “I’ve spent a great deal of time and a little bit of money at Margo’s over the years, but more importantly she has been a great community supporter.”
Throughout the years Hudson has donated her talent, time and clothing to fashion shows with the proceeds benefiting organizations like Soroptimist Club and the Henry Mayo Newhall Foundation.
Before the lights shut off forever at Margo’s, she is having an inventory sale of up to 60 percent off all items in the store.
“We’ve had a lot of good events and made some incredible memories,” Hudson said, looking back at all the years.
