Lake Barkley Chamber of Commerce proudly welcomes new businessSouthern Grace Boutique, Plus, located in the Lakeway Plaza at 105 Newman Drive in Eddyville, to the Lake Barkley business community.

The business opened its doors on Tuesday, September 24 and celebrated with the official grand opening ribbon cutting on Friday, September 27 at 11:30 a.m.

"I moved here from Nashville a year ago and fell into immediate culture shock. I was not used to the small-town lifestyle and knew no one except my fiancé," said owner Mallory Reynolds. "Over the last year I have fallen in love with my community. The people, the lifestyle, and the overall sense of welcome just blew me away. The one thing that my perfect little community, in my opinion, was missing was a place where all women no matter the size or age could shop; somewhere mothers and daughters could go together and enjoy their quality time; somewhere a woman size 2 or 22 could come and feel beautiful and validated. I knew this was something I was deeply passionate about and was going to find a way to make it happen.

"After many prayers, I was presented with the opportunity to buy an existing boutique and knew exactly where I wanted to relocate it to. Fast forward and here we are making my big dream a reality. I could not be more excited and thankful for all the encouraging words I have received. People I have never laid eyes on before having stepped up to show me and my family such love and support. I look forward to meeting and getting to know even more wonderful women of my community and hope to make you all proud."

The grand opening celebration will feature refreshments by Our Daily Bread, giveaways and store specials throughout the weekend.
