North of Minot -- a dream has come true here at Trendz Boutique. This is Nycole Burton -- a Minot High School grad who has recently opened the business in the Midwest Shop Condos at 400 46th Ave NE. You'll find her in suite 12. Step inside...and you are instantly in the newest trendy shop in town...
(Nycole Burton - Trendz Boutique Owner) "I have always loved clothes and fashion. I had originally thought about opening a jewelry store, because I didn't think there was a big variety in Minot and then it just kind of grew into all of this!"
And that is plenty of women's wear -- lots of jewelry, handbags, purses, perfume -- even bridal and prom attire. She opened here on February 7th...and says the response has been promising...
(Nycole Burton - Trendz Boutique Owner) "They really like the diverse variety that I offer and the pricing. I am not super high, but very affordable...they really like it."
Moving forward Burton has plans to move to a more visible location -- and if all goes well, expansion to other cities is in her long-term plan. For now...she's just excited to be finally open...running her own business, loving what she does.
(Nycole Burton - Trendz Boutique Owner) "It is really fun being able to help the customers coming in and getting to know everybody and just be part of the community in a different way that I didn't think I would ever be a part of it. I do...I love it! It is so much fun."
