More space means new product lines at Mona's Boutique
Mona's Boutique & Gifts in McAdenville celebrated a short move next door to a much larger space with a grand opening and ribbon cutting on March 6, 2021. After 3.5 years in its first location, the shop added 700 square feet with the move to 121 Main Street in the former location of Truliant Federal Credit Union and Town Hall.
A huge crowd of customers, friends and Chamber members turned out for the celebration that featured special discounts, giveaways and refreshments. Owner Mona Fore thanked the community for its tremendous support of the shop which has made it possible not only to survive the pandemic but to thrive and grow. She also thanked TMH Construction and the many volunteers who assisted with the move.
"I was speechless with joy when I saw the crowd for the ribbon cutting," Fore said. And customers kept coming throughout the day. "We are so appreciative of the Montcross Area Chamber and Creative Solutions in their partnership to make this day so successful.," she said.
New product lines have been added in the larger space, including a faith-based card line and an inspirational line featuring prayer journals and stickers reflecting God's love. Greenleaf in four scents is another new product line.
