Long-time store owner Georgia Brown is expanding Sunshine Boutique.
The store will be expanding to the east, through a door in the store to the property at 2 S. Main that the Brown’s also own.
“We are excited about the expansion,” Brown said.
The store is a family affair.
She, her husband-Donnie and granddaughters Rilie Creollo, Kinede Houdashelt and Tucker Ross are all involved with the store.
“There will be new boutique clothing, a designated wedding planning area and we will make our all-occasion flower section bigger, this includes fresh flowers in a cooler,” Brown said.
“The girls have been wanting to do clothing for several years,” she said.
Donnie is co-owner, Rilie is the assistant manager, Kinede’s wedding cakes will be featured, and Tucker does technology-part time, Brown said.
The Browns own 2 S. Main and 4 S. Main, which were recently vacated by the Lowell Milken Center for Unsung Heroes, which had used it for storage the last year, she said.
“We have not used the west side of the street very much, for the past year,” Norman Conard, executive director of the center said.
The new LMC, at 1 S. Main, is across the street from the 2 and 4 S. Main.
“The new building is so popular that everyone, teachers and students, want to be in the new building,” he said.
4 S. Main will be available for rent next week, Brown said.
It is 1,300 square feet, has two areas divided by a half wall, a bathroom and an area in the back that has been used as a staff room, Brown said.
