Bits of Business: Lipstick Studio Salon in State College sold

Lipstick Studio Salon closed in January, and its Facebook page indicated that the business was sold.

“We regret to tell our Facebook viewers that Lipstick Studio Salon LLC has been sold unexpectedly and bought by a new owner,” a notice on the page says. “Jackie (Garbrick) and Emily (Wright) no longer own the business, and there is entirely new staff. If you are interested in making an appointment with Emily, however she is available elsewhere.”

Wright did not respond to requests for comment.

The space at 135 E. Beaver Ave. is owned by the borough.

Anne Messner, a borough planner and zoning officer, said the former owners were not required to notify the borough that the business was sold. She said she did not know who now owned the business or what would operate in the space.
