Magnolias Boutique owners, Courtney Root and Michelle Gulbrandson, have roots deep in Central City and Merrick County. We have both lived in this area all of our lives. It only seemed logical to start a business we had been dreaming of in the community we grew up in.
We got the idea about 5 years ago to start partnership in a salon together. We purchased a residential home and with the help of our families we renovated it into a salon and spa space. While doing this we also had a vision of adding something more that we could offer our community. We started offering jewelry and some clothing and home décor in the small space that we had available. We eventually saw the need in the community for a larger offering of clothing retail. We needed more space to do that so decided to renovate the garage on the property and add a structure to connect the salon and boutique.
We were able to open in October 2021. Our community has embraced this dream of ours and we feel so blessed. We strive to offer a “middle of the road” style that fits all generations of our community. One of the things that makes our boutique unique is the sizing we offer. We do offer sizes small – 3XL in most styles. Some other things that are important to us, is to maintain a freshness to our boutique by having new styles arriving almost weekly and keeping the price affordable to everyone. We truly feel the community has embraced our business by helping it to keep growing. We continually add new items to our inventory to keep pace and provide the shopping that our community and surrounding communities are looking for.
