The Daily Times, Pryor, Okla.
Two business savvy Pryor entrepreneurs are combining their passion and knowledge to bring a unique shopping experience to downtown Pryor.
Jennie Marlin, owner of Nanabelle's Boutique, and Amber Nieto, owner of Drop Dead Gorgeous salon, are opening a children's store--The Hanger Clothing Company.
"My business partner Amber Nieto and I wanted to open up The Hanger Clothing Company simply to fulfill a need in our town," Marlin told The Times.
On the brink of of their grand opening, Marlin said, "It's a trendy yet affordable children's clothing boutique that has both boys and girls sizes newborn to size 14. Similar to Nanabelles, we want the environment of The Hanger to be extremely welcoming and Pinterest-inspired to create another shopping destination for downtown."
Expanding their brick-and-mortar presence in the heart of Pryor, is a dream in and of itself for both women.
"I've always wanted to branch out in clothing since the little girl section and Nanabelles has done so well. I just didn't have the time to do both. So Amber had the idea of wanting to put in a children's clothing boutique next door to her salon on main street and approached me about going in with her to work together and open a really diverse children's clothing storefront. I'm always looking for great business opportunities and our ideas of what we wanted to store to be lined up with each other."
Nieto agreed, adding, "I've wanted to open a children's clothing store for a while, but time never allowed for it. So, when the opportunity arose to go into business with Jennie, we knew it'd be the perfect business marriage."
Marlin and Nieto agree this isn't a run-of-the-mill kid's clothing store.
Nieto said, "Our clothing line consists of unique and trendy outfits and accessories for boys and girls sizes newborn to 14. If you want a variety of dressy and casual pieces for your little-ones, we are the downtown destination for you."
"This isn't a children's clothing store that you're going to find things like fire trucks or princesses printed on all of the items. This is the children's clothing boutique that carries outfits that parents who like to dress the kids up like mini-adults would love," Marlin said. "We are also offering personalization whether that be with initials, names, or even baby shower gift sets that can be uniquely personalized to your taste."
The two are happy to add to the Main Street--and Main Street is happy to have them.
"It has been years since there was a children's clothing store in downtown Pryor. We are excited about the variety in shopping The Hanger brings to downtown Pryor," said Pryor Main Street Director Donna Moore. "Let's all do our part and shop there as well as the other downtown businesses."
The Hanger's grand opening is Saturday, March 25 at 10 a.m at 212 East Graham.
