Boutique Prepares North Augusta Opening
A boutique store called Anna Kate’s Collection is preparing to open a new location in North Augusta.
The boutique with a focus on tween and kids’ clothing will hold a grand opening on March 10 at the store’s 211 West Ave location in North Augusta. It is in the same complex as the North Augusta School of Dance.
Silhouette artist Clay Rice will make an appearance at the boutique on March 21.
North Augusta resident Lesli Bolick initially opened the store last summer after seeing a niche in the North Augusta market and since then has been operating the business out of her home. Aside from fashion, Bolick specializes in custom design work including embroidery and business logo design.
But she also wanted her customers to have a boutique experience and to grow the fashion side of her business, which led her to open a “pop-up shop.” The new store will be open Thursday through Saturday following the Sunday, March 10 grand opening.
“I opened it just to give me flexibility as a mom,” said Bolick, adding that the business has allowed her to pursue her own passions while also getting to spend more time with her son.
