New Businesses Open
FARMINGTON — Chic Gypsy Boutique is a new shop in Farmington that offers clothing, jewelry, gifts, shoes and candles at a reasonable price.
The store opened July 7 at 89 W. Main St., Suite 6. Business hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday-Friday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays.
Owner Malorie Smith of Prairie Grove has owned a booth called Chic Gypsy Boutique in a flea market in Siloam Springs and decided to open a standalone business in Farmington.
“We liked the location because it’s on the main highway and has lots of traffic going by,” Smith said.
The store offers spray tans, plus and teen sizes and has an online presence. Monogramming and embroidery services also are available.
Smith said business has gone well for the first six weeks and she believes a key to the good business is that she wants to keep her prices reasonable.
Smith thanked her family, the city of Farmington and the Farmington Area Chamber of Commerce for their support of her new business.
Farmington Area Chamber of Commerce sponsored a ribbon cutting ceremony to welcome Chic Gypsy Boutique as the newest Chamber member. The store opened in July at 89 W. Main St., in Farmington. Store owner Malorie Smith, center, cuts the ribbon at the ceremony.
