BizBeat: New women's boutique opening downtown

October 22nd, 2017 by Philip Joens in Business

Shelby Kardell/News Tribune Simply Chic sits on High Street in downtown Jefferson City on Friday, October 20, 2017.

A new boutique clothing store held its grand opening in Jefferson City on Friday.

Simply Chic at 205 E. High St. will offer clothing for women in sizes extra-small to triple-extra-large. Three friends teamed up to open the store and want to continuously bring in new merchandise.

"It's affordable, and it's always different," co-owner Rachel Nesmeyer said.

Nesmeyer said they work with their distributor to buy the styles and sizes, but the distributor supplies different prints on clothes each time. The store offers clothing and jewelry for women of all ages.

Nesmeyer opened Simply Chic with friends Kiley Hartzler and Sheila Berhorst. All three will try to balance the new shop with their careers. She said they are still finalizing hours for the store, but it likely will be open from about 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. and 4-6 p.m. on weekdays and 10 a.m.-6 p.m. on Saturdays.
