An important letter to the MoCo Community…

As you know, each new year brings changes, challenges and opportunities.

We’ve realized that our strength is in our classes and support groups and that having a retail store and just one location is limiting our flexibility to serve our community in as many ways as we would like.  Therefore, we’re making some big changes and giving MoCo, so to speak, to you–our community.

What this means is …

  • Our West Boylston location is closing effective Sunday, January 29, 2012. HOWEVER, we will continue to provide our most popular classes and groups at various locations in Worcester and Central Massachusetts but through a new Mothers & Company, which will be a non-profit organization.
  • We are excited to announce that we have a group of committed community members who have agreed to sit on the board of directors of this new organization. Transitioning to a nonprofit organization with the same mission will allow us to continue to provide the classes and groups that you care about in locations that may be more convenient to you. It will also allow us to provide some of the services and activities you have requested and nonprofit status will provide YOU with the opportunity to get involved.
  • The current schedule will continue for now and we will announce later this month what our January schedule will be (as far as classes and groups in our current location). There are some classes already scheduled for early 2012 and they will most likely run as scheduled, just in other locations in Worcester and other towns. We’ll have a firmer plan and schedule for the future soon, so stay tuned and please continue to refer your friends to MoCo for classes and support via our website, mothersandcompany.com or mothersandcompany.org or have them call us at (508) 835-6666.
  • Of course, in order to close our store, we’ll have a big sale. We encourage you to come visit our shop before the holidays to benefit from big discounts on items that are perfect as holiday/birthday/shower gifts for expectant parents, new parents, babies and small children. (Details coming soon.)

We know this may come as a surprise to most of you and please know it was an extremely difficult decision to make but we are excited for this new adventure.   All of us at Mothers & Company have enjoyed getting to know you and we look forward to continuing our mission of providing information and support to families in Central Massachusetts in a non-profit capacity in 2012 and beyond.
