Apt. 202 has been around at the hip 9th and 9th shopping district for five years, but this year, it's getting a whole new look and location, just up the street from its current spot.
Shop owner Ashley Rothwell-Campagna is passionate about styling her customers, and stocks her store with some of the best brands for everything that is on trend. Her love of women's fashion shows in her interactions with every person that comes into her store, and the new place is getting an even hipper vibe with the addition of her husband's salon.
We chatted with Ashley about the new place, set to open the first week in November.
SLM: Tell us about this new store, how is it different from your current store?
ARC: The new store is stunning! My husband and I bought the building and have done a complete remodel to include both of our businesses. My space is larger and much more modern but still has the wonderful quaint feeling that my current space has.
SLM: Why did you decide to move locations?
ARC: It has always been a dream of mine to purchase the space where my store could reside and it finally happened!
SLM: Your husband is also opening a salon in the store. Why the co-op?
ARC: My husband is moving his salon, Salon MC, as well. We have always wanted to join ventures and we finally got the oppertunity. The spaces are completely seperate, as are the businesses, but the collaboration of them in the same building is certainly exciting.
SLM: What style and demographic will the new Apt. 202 cater to?
ARC: I cater to women of all ages looking for unique and interesting pieces to add to their wardrobe. My passion is to style women, so I encourage any woman who needs a little help to come in the store.
SLM: Any new products on the horizon for this new store?
ARC: The products will basically stay the same, although I am always switching things up. I am on a constant quest to find new designers and products to bring to my customers.
Fall fashion is in full force at Apt. 202. Stop in and indulge a little in some of the greatest pieces the season has to offer!
The new Apt. 202 is located at 955 E. 900 South.
