MASON CITY – A clothing store in downtown Mason City’s “cultural crescent” is closing its doors.

The Clothesline Children’s Consignment Shop, which is a member of the Mason City Chamber of Commerce, will be closing for business on January 31st.  The store opened this past March of 2012.  “We are so excited to become a part of this increasingly growing downtown!” the store posted on its Facebook page in 2012.

Store management is asking consignment customers to pick up their merchandise immediately.  “If your merchandise is still here on (January) 25th, it is ours to donate. Please make an appointment to pick up your money and clothes.”

The business is for sale and is available to be purchased for a limited time.  It is located at 122 North Federal Avenue.

“It’s basically turn key,” Clothesline management said on Thursday.  “We’ve had some prospects but people think the downtown is a waste of time.  Sad.”

“The building is rented.  They would be purchasing the business along with the racks, cash register ect. We are keeping all the vender info so they would be able to fill it back up with merchandise fast. We turn people away all the time to bring things in so that’s never a problem.”

Management indicated that a sale price is negotiable, and they can be reached via email at or phone at 424-8184, ask for Mary.
