Woodfin – AMPed Up Kids Consignment and Boutique has moved up the road from its previous location in Reynolds Village to 171 Weaverville Road. According to owner Sharee’ Perciful, the new store offers an additional 250-square-foot of space and more visibility. Perciful, who owns the shop with her husband, Kenneth, said the move was a good decision in terms of drawing more customers to their shop.
“It’s been great. The first week of the re-opening we were really busy; the second week we had a lot of new customers. There’s a big difference being on the main highway,” said Perciful. Perciful has admitted in the past to frustration with the exposure given to businesses in Reynolds Village.
The small business owner was outspoken about the lack of Merrimon Road signage for smaller businesses located within the Reynolds Village development. Perciful, however, sees this new move as time to move on and said she doesn’t want to dwell on the previous storefront. She said she is pleased with the attention the store is getting at their new location.
“The amount of exposure and having road front property is making a big difference,” she said. “We’re able to have the boutique section set apart from the rest of the store instead of mixed together, which is nice,” said Perciful. “We have the same hours: Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.”
