I had the pleasure of sitting down with local boutique owner Mary Jenkins. Wanted to learn more about her boutique, what is takes to operate a business and some fun upcoming events she has planned. So continue on reading to find out more about this Savvy Boss Lady.
DL: What made you open your own boutique?
MJ: I am already a hair stylist, and I thought since I already do that and have a passion for fashion I might as well incorporate the two. I just love making women feel good about them selves and giving them a confidence booster
DL: Where did your love for fashion come from?
MJ: My mother inspired my passion for fashion. She would inspire me because of how great of a thrifty shopper she is. And naturally I have an eye for fashion
DL: What goes into operating your own boutique?
MJ: My key component is advertising daily, and try to do different things as much as possible to try and involve the community so that people are driven to the shop
DL: How long have you been in business?
MJ: Girls and Curves has been in business for a year and a half, however my first business that I had Mirrors of beauty Hair Salon was in business for several years and I just converted it over to Girls and Curves .
DL: Does it sometimes get overwhelming running a business?
MJ: It very well can, because some days can be very slow ,and others can be very busy. You just need to keep faith in God and push through.
DL: Who are your top 3 celebrity style/ fashion idols?
MJ: Beyoncé, Solange, India Arie I like these artists because to me they have an odd, unique style way of dressing.
DL: In the next five years where do you see yourself going with your business?
MJ: I see Girls and Curves expanding statewide and franchising out. My boutique for me is a long-term goal.
Off the record Mrs. Jenkins and I had a small chit chat and she told me on August 18, 2018 she will be hosting a fashion Show and is planning for it to be a huge turn out. She will be having model auditions and there will be several types of vendors at the event as well as other people who work within the beauty industry.
