Coming Soon: The Jenny Shop
In just a couple of weeks downtown Buffalo will see the grand opening of The Jenny Shop. I spoke to boutique-owner, Jen Hemmingway, about the pending opening. The store is coming together,‚ÄĚ she told me. ‚ÄúThe shelving is in for the most part and many of the lines are coming in. I can‚Äôt wait to take the paper off the windows.‚ÄĚ When I last spoke to Jen, she was not able to tell me about many of the lines that she would be carrying‚Ä¶ today it was a different story. ‚ÄúWe have something for all age-groups and styles,‚ÄĚ she started. ‚ÄúFor example, there‚Äôs Pure and Company for women‚Äôs business and leisure, Mac and Jac for the ‚Äėthirty-somethings‚Äô, Silver Jeans for the younger girls, Atelier career wear, ready to wear Lily dresses and skirts, Y.A.S.B. 100% silk kimono dresses, Lui jackets, and Chalet Ideas urban contemporary‚Ä¶ I‚Äôm really watching my price points while not skipping on quality and style at the same time.‚ÄĚ
Not only is Jen stocking up on the outfits, she‚Äôs also looking at delivering cool accessories to go with them. ‚ÄúI‚Äôm really excited about the Kitten handbag line (made locally) and Stephanie Robb line of jewelry (also made locally). We‚Äôll be carrying Latico Leather Company purses and business bags, Tolani Collection scarves‚Ä¶ and if all goes well this year I plan on expanding to men‚Äôs clothing in the not-too-distant future. The storefront is just what I have been looking for‚Ä¶ it‚Äôs brand new, there are big marble window displays, and there is a lot of activity in the Ellicott Square Building.‚ÄĚ
I asked Jen what else she liked about being downtown and she told me that she was very excited to be located near Chop Chop and Globe Market. She also said that the Charlie the Butcher (located inside the building) was a big draw to the building for lunchtime traffic. There‚Äôs even a caf√© across the way. The grand opening will take place March 11th. From then on, the boutique will be open Monday thru Friday from 10:30am to 5:50pm. There will also be special appointment hours in the evening and on weekends.
The Jenny Shop is located at The Ellicott Square Building 295 Main Street Suite A (easy to get to by Metro Rail).
