Heroine Boutique, a downtown women’s clothing store, opened this week and will have a grand opening celebration on Friday, Nov. 6. The store is at 1328 Commercial St., next to Jake’s Barber Shop.
Michelle Bouma, owner of Mi Shoes, opened the store after having success with a mobile mini boutique called Belle on Wheels. Bouma sold clothing from the back of a truck at the Bellingham Farmer’s Market and at the Commercial Street Night Market in September and October.
The clothing carries moderately-priced, hip feminine clothing, Bouma said.
“There’s a style. It’s the Mi Shoes style,” she said. “Women love Mi Shoes and I have a feeling that they’re going to love Heroine just as much.”
Heroine is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and had a grand opening celebration on Friday during the Downtown Bellingham Art Walk.
“The more boutique shopping the better,” Bouma said. “I’ve talked to people that think more
stores means their slice is getting smaller. I think more stores means we’re making the pie bigger.”
