Whips n Furs to host grand opening celebration this weekend

Whips n Furs, San Diego’s newest costume, drag and theatrical makeup supply store, is inviting the community to its space this Saturday, Sept. 19 for a grand opening celebration.

The store opened in August in the North Park space that for years served the drag community as Secrets Wig Designs. Now Whips n Furs, the space is home to a unique boutique for costumes, drag, theatrical makeup supplies, Halloween, burlesque, cosplay and more. 

Guests who visit the store during the grand opening celebration will be treated to complimentary light snacks and refreshments, DJ sounds of Jon Doss and Jinx Mirage and live makeup demos by local artists Sergio Cabrera, and Sochi of Kikis Tattoo Service.

As a bonus, all customers will receive a 20% discount storewide all day long from 11 am to 6 pm.

For those looking for a Halloween costume, Whips n Furs says they have been adding to their inventory of spooky glamour to amp up for Halloween 2020.

A number of COVID-19 precautions are taken daily in the store and will be in effect for the grand opening celebration. Precautions include: outdoor entertainment (sidewalk in front of store); all staff and customers must wear a mask; hand sanitizer; no fitting room available at this time; limit of 5-6 shoppers at a time inside the store; 6 ft. social distancing when possible; and those who have been feeling symptoms or have recently tested positive should stay home. Those who can't attend the grand opening event due to safety precautions will be able to utilize the 20% discount at another time.
