Kidstop Children’s Boutique and Stride Rite Bootery owner Jeanne Clark is excited about offering her customers a new way to shop just in time for Christmas. On Sunday, the store’s website will go live and orders can be placed online. Clark says they will offer same day, in-store pickup as well as shipping options for out of town customers.
“Our store offers a wide selection of classic children’s clothes from preemie – 16 for boys and girls as well as shoes, gifts, books, toys and dolls,” Clark said. “Our website will offer all of our apparel lines with plans to expand to our full line of inventory as we progress.”
According to Clark, their reach has continued to grow in Owensboro as well as across the country. The store has experienced growth via social media platforms and currently ship all over the United States. By offering a website, customers will be able to shop at their convenience and are not restricted to a 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. shopping window.
“As working moms, we know shopping from home is often much more convenient, and we want to assist our customers in the best way that we can,” Clark said. “We never want to lose the personal touch we have with our customers by going online, and will always be available in store, via phone or messaging through the website or social media to assist our customers in finding exactly what they need.”
Clark says that Kidstop is proud to have served Owensboro and the surrounding community since 1986, spanning multiple generations of families. Her employees love seeing families come together in the store to celebrate some of the most joyful moments in their lives through the birth of a new baby, holiday or other special occasions.
“It brightens our day when a new mom comes in and remembers shopping here with her mother when she was a child, or when a grandmother comes in to shop and shares stories about shopping here when her children were little and now returning to shop for grandchildren,” Clark said.
According to Clark, The Greater Owensboro Chamber of Commerce has been powerful in supporting and growing local businesses. As an initiative to drive and support local stores, Shop Small along with Independence Bank, has created a day that is one of the busiest shopping days of the year for Kidstop. This year’s Shop Small is a great kick off to the holiday season and takes Saturday.
“We feel so fortunate to live in a town where our small businesses are supported and able to thrive and are incredibly grateful for the support of our community and beyond for the last 33 plus years,” Clark said. “Our community support is what brings us through our blue doors every morning.”
