Downtown women's boutique to open in April
Two Ravens Boutique, a women's store, will open at 407 Broadway at the end of April in downtown Cape Girardeau.
Owner Bridgett Kielhofner described the store's mission as introducing the concept of stylish giving to customers. The business will offer trendy women's fashion clothing, unique accessories and home decor. Two Ravens will donate at least 10 percent of all profits to support local and global not-for-profit organizations, helping its customers give back with every purchase.
"By channeling the customer's love of fashion, we promise the ultimate boutique shopping experience allowing the customer to be at the heart of the activity," Kielhofner said.
Old Town Cape executive director Marla Mills said she hopes Two Ravens Boutique will be a catalyst in helping attract similar business to Broadway. "This type of destination retail business is exactly what is needed in downtown," she said.
