BROADWAY, Va. (WHSV) – The Creekside store on Main Street off Broadway held its grand opening on Friday, making it the latest in a string of new businesses to come to the growing city.
The boutique will sell women’s clothing of all sizes and is the first of its kind in the city.
“There is a real need in the Broadway area for women’s clothing and me being a girl of different sizes, I always look forward to finding new items for girls of all sizes to wear,” said Amy Funk , owner of Creekside Boutique.
Funk, a longtime Broadway resident, says the store will feature new releases weekly and be open Wednesday through Saturday.
The Creekside store joins businesses like Townes Homemade BBQ and Steel Mill Gym that opened on Broadway in 2021 to great success.
Beards & Broads Ax Throwing is also opening a location in the city this summer.
“Existing businesses can tell how much the leaders in the city really appreciate our businesses that are here and when people are looking at where to bring their business, I think looking at how leaders have treated existing businesses in the past really speaks positively about that. “Cari said. Orebaugh, Director of Marketing and Development for the City of Broadway.
Orebaugh says the city is committed to being a welcoming, business-friendly community and continues to seek to attract new businesses.
“We just promoted the spaces and opportunities available. We therefore have a great relationship with our local estate agents, so we understand what storefront options are available. If we have a potential business, we’ll be able to find out what options might work for the business they’re trying to do,” she said.
The city is working on a digital and video marketing campaign to promote its local businesses this summer.
Broadway is also gearing up to launch its new community market on Saturday, May 21. This will be a brand change from what was previously a more traditional Farmer’s Market.
“It opens up options for vendors who are not just local products or local agricultural products to participate. That way we can help other small businesses and entrepreneurs and they can set up and sell their products and inventory that way,” Orebaugh said.
The city is also planning to bring entertainment, health and wellness classes and market demonstrations.
