Tammy York says she was very pleased to see a steady flow of customers visit her new store for its grand opening on Saturday, August 27 in Barriere.
The store, called ‘Our Little Secret’, will be selling new and used clothing, and can be found at 4646 Barriere Town Road, across the street from the liquor store.
Tammy stated she had only used clothing for both children and women offered for sale at the time, but expects by the end of September to have men’s clothing, as well as bins with items such as new socks and new underwear.
The used clothing will be on consignment, and Tammy says she will be accepting such items on Tuesdays and Thursdays, noting that all items brought in for consignment must be in good condition to be considered.
The new business owner says this is her first venture as a store owner. She moved to Barriere about two years ago from Vancouver Island, and prior to that she lived in the Lower Mainland.
Tammy’s family, two boys and her husband, love living in Barriere.
“We really like the small town feel. Everybody knows you, and we like the parades and are looking forward to the Fall Fair,”says the entreprenuer.
Tammy notes that she has been a fitness enthusiast for over 10 years, and is currently the new fitness instructor for TRU Barriere, with courses starting October 12.
“I am so excited to meet new people and teach classes in something that I am passionate about,” she said about her work as an instructor.
Tammy’s new store ‘Our Little Secret’ will be open Monday through Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
