FAYETTEVILLE - A new store that came to Fayette County in November held its official ribbon cutting Wednesday with the help of county residents.
Dove's Outlet Village in Fayetteville has been home to Chika's Boutique since the middle of November, but it was officially welcomed into the town Wednesday.
Store owner Samantha Summers said many consumers travel to Charleston for handbags, accessories or jewelry and hopes Chika's will bring higher-end clothing to an area known for other great attractions.
"We spend a lot of time up here on the weekends rafting and ziplinging and never could find a place to buy awesome jeans or those types of products, so we we're hoping to handselect merchandise for the customers in this area, and hope that they enjoy it as much as we do," Summers said.
Chika's is very happy with its Black Friday success and will continue to sell its merchandise at 20 percent off through the weekend.
