BISMARCK, N.D. - A local entrepreneur is opening a new store in downtown Bismarck.
Owner of White Lace Bridal Shop Anne Cleary is using her business skills for a new venture.
She's opening Hiccups kids boutique on Feb. 13.
She says she's done market research that shows there's a need for more children's stores in the area.
She's using her background in early childhood education to fill her boutique with fun, creative toys that also focus on developmental milestones.
"They are using their cognitive mind and their creative mind and not just staring at a screen. So a lot of our toys are going to be motor skills and kind of that cognitive development," said Cleary.
The store will offer products for babies to kids. Cleary plans to sell toys, clothes, baby basics and little gifts for adults.
The boutique is located on Main STreet next to Stella's DCor & Gifts.
