Jackson Heights Boutique Store Closing Jan. 31

Jan. 5, 2018 By Tara Law

A Jackson Heights boutique that offers flowers, home decor, sweet treats and coffee is closing.

The owners of Pauglina, located 75-26 37th Ave, have announced the store will close on Jan. 31. All merchandise is currently 50 percent off.

The store opened in October 2016 and was a combination coffee bar, florist, and home decor shop.

The store owners, husband and husband duo Miguel Briceno and Jeffrey Whitney, announced the closing Jan. 2 on Facebook. They thanked their customers for their support during the store’s run.

“No regrets and it’s been a pleasure to serve the Jackson Heights community as it continues to thrive albeit sans Pauglina,” said the posting.

Briceno and Whitney are Jackson Heights residents.

Huge loss for the neighbourhood! I am so sad about this. It was such a beautiful, welcoming space with lovely and interesting things. I could always count on the gorgeous flowers and on Miguel’s ready smile. I will miss Pauglina so much!


I bought several Christmas presents at Pauglina this year and last year, and the owners were so nice and welcoming to me and my kids. We’ll miss them!
