New store in downtown TR
December 23, 2009 by WLKM
Historic Downtown Three Rivers is sporting another new business these days, one catering to the needs of the very young set.
A December 11th ribbon-cutting conducted by the Three Rivers Area Chamber of Commerce and its Ambassador Committee helped celebrate the grand opening of Ambrosia Vae Baby Boutique at 113 Portage Avenue.
The business is owned and operated by the mother/daughter combination of Holly Hart and Amber Witt, respectively.
The store bills itself as providing a “unique collection of baby and children’s clothing and accessories.” Witt said, “We have a really beautiful dress line. It’s Isabella and Chloe and they’re really detailed, really lacy, lots of sparkles and just lots of details. That’s one of our favorite lines. We also have a line called Bobbinette for little boys. It’s a very classic little boy look – bibs, corduroy, flannel shirts. We have a Harley line also for the little boys.” And Witt added, “We’re always going to carry a section that’s ten dollars and under – brand name stuff ten dollars and under – so if anyone is looking for a bargain, we have that right here, too.”
The store also carries accessories such as “piggy banks, little rubber duckies, (and) fancy little blankets by Patricia Ann Designs.”
The store occupies a portion of the space that for many years was home to Matt & Mike’s Eatery. The restaurant is moving and is slated to re-open soon in a new location at South Lincoln and West Michigan avenues in Three Rivers.
Witt is looking toward serving the needs of Three Rivers residents and those in surrounding communities, as well as customers from as far away as Kalamazoo.
Ambrosia Vae Baby Boutique is open Tuesday through Friday from 10 to 6 and on Saturday from 10 to 2. You can reach Holly Hart at (269) 506-5404 and Amber Witt at (269) 267-3596.
Hart said, “We’ll be getting new merchandise in all the time. Hopefully, we just grow and expand.”
