One business moved out, but another moved in. Teresa Horton is excited about her new business venture after working over a decade and a half with Cynthia Singletary’s law office.

Horton is the proud owner of Lolli’s on Main, a children’s and ladies boutique, tanning and gifts shop located at 109 Main Street in Bladenboro. The store was formally the location of Grace & Company.

“I just didn’t want to see another business leave Bladenboro,” Horton said. When she found out Grace & Company was closing, she decided to open the store back up under her company name and offer even more products.

The boutique currently offers women’s clothes of all sizes, baby clothes, jewelry, gifts and hopes to offer men’s clothing soon according to Horton.

“I am working on getting more merchandise in to offer a larger variety,” Horton said.

The shop also offers tanning services. This month there will be drawing for a chance to win a month’s worth of free tanning with a purchase of a $25 tanning package.

The hours are 10:00 a.m until 7:00 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, Saturday the store is open 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. They are closed on Sundays and Monday.
