Former Consignment Shop's Sudden Closure

A little over a year ago, Hudson Valley residents were left both confused and concerned following the sudden closure of Simplicity Consignment on New Hackensack Road in Poughkeepsie.

Consigners, customers, and even employees were shocked by the seemingly 'quiet closure' of Simplicity, with plenty wondering about the items they had dropped off to be consigned, and others waiting on money owed to them for prior sales.

A local property management company ended up posting information about the shop's closure, providing some updates about items, but not much else was ever revealed regarding the prior owners.
