Alexandra opened The Village Boutique in Ridgeway in 2018 along with her mother. Alexandra was 24 years old and had planned on becoming a nurse, but after undergoing treatment for cancer, she decided she didn’t want to be in the health field. Instead, she started working in a little boutique in town where she fell in love with retail, working with customers and playing with the products.
That summer, Alexandra saw a building for sale on the main drag in Ridgeway, and right away she knew she could create something amazing there. That fall, she opened The Village Boutique – and she hasn’t looked back since.
In 2020, The Village Boutique started selling online and has moved 98% of their product into their online store. The business grew during COVID and Alexandra and her mother are excited to be opening a new store in March 2022. They have started to book the clothing and accessories for this new location and will be diving into new products and lines that this expansion enables them to carry. Two stores will be a lot more work — but Alexandra is dedicated to it and very excited to be opening up in a whole new market.
