Timothy Vargas and Benjamin Johansen recently purchased Century Costumes/Century fx Studios, a wig, professional makeup, and costume store that has been located on S Orange Avenue for over 10 years.
The new boutique, located in the space most recently Artistree, will continue the product lines from previous owners and expand into jewelry, handbags, and other accessory items. Future plans include expanding into services such as beauty consultations. Owner Ben Johansen tells Bungalower he believes the new location is better suited to serve the existing customer base and will also be ideal for attracting new clientele.
“Community response to the change of ownership and relocation of the business has been overwhelmingly positive and we are ecstatic to be joining the College Park business community,” said Johansen.
The new store is scheduled to open on October 1 in time to sell costumes for the Halloween season.
