A legendary retail staple in Acadiana is closing its doors for good.

This morning The Get Wet Shop made the announcement via Facebook that they will be closing their store "forever." Located on Ambassador Caffery near Acadiana Lanes, The Get Wet Shop has been a swimwear and dancewear retail staple for 39 years.

Founded in 1978, the store was originally known as Delhomme Swim Supply and provided Lycra Racing Swim Suits for local and area competitive swim teams.

Since then, Get Wet expanded to sell clothing for dance teams and many other accessories.

We're sad to see them go, but we thank The Get Wet shop for being one of our great advertisers and an iconic retail location in the Lafayette area.
