A baby boutique is long overdue in Claremore.
The community is celebrating the arrival of a baby boutique on Main Street—saying this is exactly what downtown needs.
"I had a former employee that was having a baby, and another employee having a baby and there was nowhere in Claremore to buy a baby gift," said Cari Bohannan, owner of The District on Main, and now The District Baby.
"So, we had ordered some stuff at for The District and started a small baby section. The response was overwhelming so we decided to go for it."
She said the feedback so far has been overwhelmingly positive.
"And that former employee, Kayla Dossett, is going to manage the store," she added.
The District Baby will stock a little bit of everything: Clothing, newborn to 4-T, shoes, diaper bags, toys, bath products, book, unique gifts and so much more.
The shop will even offer registries, she said.
When it comes to selecting merchandise to carry in the store from the overflowing baby market, Bohannan said, "I'm being very picky on quality and price. I want everything pretty moderately priced."
She said she's excited to bring a unique shopping experience to Main Street.
"I just wanted to open something additional to offer something to Claremore that we don't have, to keep people shopping local," Bohannan said. "Just to be able to support the local community.
The shop opens at 418 W. Will Rogers Blvd., today, Monday, Aug. 12, but for The District Baby is also on Facebook and Instagram.
