A family-owned beauty salon in the San Francisco Bay Area has been closed, its owners announced Tuesday.
The Patrons’ Salon at 617 North Magnolia Ave., which has been a family business since 1932, closed its doors Tuesday after two years of operations, according to the Patrons.
It is the second closed beauty salon to shutter in the city in as many years, after the closure of the East Bay Beauty Salon in Oakland last year.
A spokeswoman for Patrons said the salon will reopen in September after renovations.
The salon closed after about two years in business, and owners said they hoped to reopen the salon in September.
Patrons owner Maria Beauty Salon, whose name means “I will take care of you” in Spanish, was among those who mourned the closure.
“Patty is my life.
She is my soul,” said the owner of Patrons, who requested her last name not be used.
“She has always been the sweetest and most supportive person I know, and she always will be.
I will miss her dearly.”
The Pattersons’ salon was the first in San Francisco to be named the best in the Bay Area.
The salon has been in business for more than a decade.
The owners said the closure comes after more than 100 years of operation.
“I have worked for this business my whole life, and it has been the most rewarding time of my life,” said Patrons owner Patrons daughter, Jennifer Patters.
“We will miss Patrons and her warmth and care.”
The salon was founded in 1932, and Patrons have been in the business since the 1920s.
They were featured on the San Diego Union-Tribune in 1924 and 1927, and were featured in the film The Patterson Sisters, which ran for eight years in New York.
The San Francisco Chronicle reported that the owners have been unable to find a permanent home for the business.
