Women’s clothing boutique Suzetra has opened in the old Ann Taylor Loft space at 3825 W. 50th St. The 1,500-square-foot boutique opened on Black Friday, Nov. 25, and specializes in apparel for women ages 35 to 45, said boutique owner Susie Peterson.
“We have everything from casual to cocktail wear,” she said.
Opening a boutique has been a life-long dream of Peterson. She graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Stout with a degree in retail merchandising and management and then moved to Arizona where she worked as a retail buyer. Now she lives in Mendota Heights and said she’s excited about the 50th & France location, which has become a magnet for new boutiques and other specialty retailers in recent months.
“The other boutique [owners] have become very kind,” she said. “There’s kind of a hometown feel here.”
