The Clay Birch brings new bou­tique op­tions to Rock­mart

The Standard Journal - - LOCAL - By Lorene Parker loren­[email protected]

Rock­mart shop­pers have a new bou­tique to visit: The Clay Birch.

Owner Tracy Clay’s new busi­ness is lo­cated in the Tri­an­gle Foods shop­ping cen­ter at 1075 Nathan Dean By­pass, Rock­mart. Their cur­rent hours are Tues­days through Fri­days from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Satur­days 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sun­days 1 to 6 p.m.

Af­ter her former full­time ca­reer as a pe­di­atric den­tal hy­gien­ist ended due to health prob­lems, Clay searched for a store­front in sur­round­ing ar­eas such as Dal­las and Hi­ram.

With her three sons still at­tend­ing school in Rock­mart, it was a clear choice to keep her new ven­ture close to home.

“I felt that our com­mu­nity needed a store like this,” Clay said.

The store’s web­site, the­clay­birtch.com, of­fers the same women’s cloth­ing and gift items that are sold in the bou­tique, which are avail­able in a wide range of sizes.

On­line shop­pers have the con­ve­nient op­tion for ship­ping as well as in-store pick-up.

Clay said, “I hope the store will con­tinue to grow and evolve.”

She plans to sell men’s cloth­ing in the near fu­ture.

The Clay Birch opened their doors for the first time on June 7, but a grand open­ing event is planned for the end of July.

Clay plans to host a “Back to School” event with dis­counts for school teach­ers.

As well, Clay hopes to hear feed­back and sug­ges­tions from cus­tomers about items they would like to see on the shelves.
