HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WAFF) - “Customers have already told us that they’ve got their husbands watching the kids and they’re ready to get out of the house.”
Retail business owners are rejoicing Thursday. At 5:01 p.m. they can officially open their doors to customers once again.
The shop has grown to 12,000 square feet of space and that combined with their sister shop, Red Bird Boutique, next door holds merchandise from 200 locally owned businesses.
“We’ve been trying so hard, working so hard, extra hours. Very few days off. Just cause again it’s harder to sell one item at a time versus customers coming in. so had a little bit of emotional break down and excitement and happiness. Just thank you to the community cause they have really shown up,” she said.
They will be open from 5:05 p.m. until 9 Thursday, but Gleason says they may stay open later if there are people still shopping.
