Local Small Business, Miss Lori’s Boutique hosts Grand Opening Celebration Tuesday, July 23rd from 4 to 6 pm at her shop and is donating 5% of all sales to Beach Care Services.
A former Georgia girl, Lori who now calls Panama City home has found a way to connect her love of fashion, finding a good deal and helping putting a smile on other women’s faces with her new business on Thomas Drive, Miss Lori’s Boutique. Lori now being a local herself was inspired by Beach Care Services’ motto “Locals helping Locals” and wants to make sure she is doing her part in her community.
Beach Care Services helps local residents who are in need of short term emergency assistance when life throws them curve balls, and being a single mother herself, Buckalew is no stranger to life’s everyday challenges. She hopes that her business can not only help her make her own way, but be a vehicle to help others.
Lori Buckalew, has admitted to being addicted to the feeling she gets when one of her shoppers “walks out with a smile and feeling like a million bucks.” Lori recognizes that many women in our area have a taste for designer labels but can’t afford the price tag that comes with it, a fact that moved her to offer designer resale items at her store Miss Lori’s Boutique, as well as new accessories and gifts.
Most of the items on consignment are pre-loved, but are in very good shape and no one would be the wiser, she says! Lori also has a flair for arranging her pieces so shoppers can get ideas for their own wardrobe. She loves putting an outfit together and is always eager to help her customers find an ensemble that works for them. Customers can come play “dress up”, as she lovingly calls it, Monday through Saturday from 11 am to 6 pm.
Residents are encouraged to come by Tuesday the 23rd for the Grand Opening Event from 4 to 6 pm at 2429 Thomas Drive. There will be great deals, a wine tasting with light eats, giveaways and most importantly, a chance to support a local business owner as she supports Beach Care Services.
