Tell us about your business
Boutique 206 opened in October 2014. It really just happened very quickly after a discussion with my husband about what I wanted to do once the kids started school. In a matter of two weeks Boutique 206 was more than a passing conversation and we were on our way to market on a day long whirlwind shopping expedition. With the help of a friend, a fashion marketing major who helped choose brands and a style, We opened our doors and were welcomed by the community with open arms. Boutique 206 is a women apparel and accessory store. And more recently we have expanded our selection to now include giftable and home decor items as well as a few items for the men. Also Boutique 206 is home to G Studio Salon, operated by Tori Hood.
What is one thing that makes your business great?
I think one thing that makes us great are of course our customers who support us. But also my employees who work here make us great. I am very fortunate to have a great staff of young ladies who are a part of this community and who have all became more than employees, we’re a family who loves and supports each other.
