After the controversial opening of Pura Vida Salon this semester there is the possibility that a boutique may open next door.
“We are in the preliminary stages of investigating a student-run boutique,” Jim Litton, director of the Griggs Center said. “It’s very early in the process and no decision has been made.”
Though the boutique is still just an idea, it has peaked the interest of some students.
“I am excited about the boutique,” said Laine Foith, a sophomore family studies major from Plano. “I think it will be a very good idea because it is easily accessible and it creates job opportunities for students.”
“I think it would be great to have a boutique on campus!” said Emily Morrical, a sophomore family studies major from Wylie. “It would most likely get good business because I know a ton of people who love little shops like that!”
While some students seem excited about the boutique, Andrew Steenburg, a sophomore criminal justice major had a different take.
“It will probably draw one demographic of people,” Steenburg said. “If I’m interested, I’ll go.”
While students seem to be interested in the opening of a boutique, there is little information about when it would open.
“Given that we have just begun looking into the opportunity, nothing is concrete right now,” Litton said.
