FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Cheryl’s Unique Boutique Hosts Grand Opening Celebration on August 15
& Collects School Supplies for Kent Salvation Army
Kent, Washington, August 4, 2009 – Cheryl Wright, owner of Cheryl’s Unique Boutique, is celebrating the boutique’s grand opening with an in-store customer event on Saturday, August 15. From 1 to 4 p.m., customers and guests will be treated to refreshments, music, sales and prize giveaways at the boutique on West Meeker Street in downtown Kent. The public is invited to attend, and everyone who brings a friend will get a free latte, compliments of Cheryl’s Unique Boutique.
After working in the property management and mortgage industries, Wright opened the distinctive store late last year, fulfilling a lifelong dream of owning her own shop. In the midst of a recession, Wright felt it was a good time to offer local shoppers an affordable place to purchase merchandise for men, women and children, including clothing, shoes, jewelry, accessories and more. In an unusual twist, the boutique also offers lattes, mochas and houseplants grown in the boutique’s greenhouse.
“Everything in the store is priced at under $30, so everyone can afford to shop here,” Wright said.
Since airing a new TV commercial, customers have been eager to find Wright’s store. Cheryl’s Unique Boutique is located at 406 West Meeker Street, near Bev’s Cucina and across from the Meeker Street Emporium which is closing later this month. As a Kent resident for more than 10 years, Wright chose downtown Kent for her boutique because she wanted to work close to home and contribute to the revitalization of downtown.
“I just love downtown Kent, and I want to see it thrive,” Wright said.
As an active member of the community, Wright has also agreed to be a donation site for Kent Salvation Army’s school supply drive for Kent and Auburn schools. From August 1 through 31, the boutique is accepting school supply donations during normal store hours for grades kindergarten through 12. Needed items include wide-ruled paper, rules, pens, pencils and erasers, backpacks, glue, crayons, markers and other school supplies.
Cheryl’s Unique Boutique is run by Wright, her daughter Susie and their dog Lilly, an energetic puppy that greets guests from behind the corner. The store is open Monday through Saturday and features new and resale items for men, women and children, all priced below $30.
