Bobbie's now open

Bobbie's, the new locally-owned women's clothing store, opened this past Monday in the new strip mall in front of Kohl's. It's great to see a non-chain store open in chain-heavy south Grand Forks and it's also great to see the store filling a void in the local market. I wish them success.

I was at Bobbie's yesterday and the store is very well done. High quality merchandise, great place to buy some fun things.
It will be an education for buyers who think too long about purchases. She orders one size run in items to prevent people from running into others wearing the same thing!

What does that mean? One each of Size 0, 2, 4, etc? Or only size 4 (for example) of a particular style?

Either way, it doesn't prevent you from running into someone else wearing it. In the first case, it greatly diminishes the chances, in the second, it just means that everyone wearing it will look (roughly) the same :-)

Good luck, Bobbies!

Bobbie's is locally owned and operated, which we all should support in our community. Knowing the owners, Jim and Bobbie Beal, I can tell you that Bobbie previously managed Casual Corner for 20 years before the chain shut down. The staff is comprised of all former Casual Corner employees and they are SUPER friendly and knowledgeable. Thank you Grand Forks Life for promoting local business!!
