Feb. 22, 2016 By Michael Florio

A popular women’s boutique will close its doors this weekend.

Prima Donna, located at 37-47 82 St., will shutter for good on Saturday, according to a store manager who did not wish to disclose his name.

The store, which sells women’s jewelry and accessories such as shoes, handbags, scarves, necklaces, earrings and bracelets, is currently having a going out of business sale. Certain items, such as necklaces and earrings, have been marked down to $1 or $2.

Prima Donna previously also had a store located at 80-27 37th Ave., which closed last year. The space is now occupied by a Caffe Bene.

The owner decided to close that store due to its close proximity to the 82nd Street location, according to the store manager.

A third Prima Donna location, located on Austin Street in Forest Hills, is also going out of business. That store will close on March 6, according to an employee with that location.

Prima Donna also owns stores at 29-24 Ditmars Blvd., 31-39 Steinway St. and 37-64 Junction Blvd., according to its website.

A store employee with the Ditmars Boulevard location said that store is also holding sales, but its future has yet to be determined.

Calls to the Steinway Street and Junction Boulevard locations were not answered.
