A shoe shop in Shawville has been all shined up, celebrating a grand opening on Saturday with a new name, logo and its new owner.
Jill McBane is the proud owner of Boutique Shawville Shooz, located at 387 Main St., where she hopes her change in careers will not only help spruce up the local shoe game with some new brands, but offer her an opportunity to succeed within her own community.
“I was working in the city and hated the commute and had to come up with something else,” said McBane.
Working for the Firefighters’ Credit Union, she never imagined, nor wanted to imagine, working in retail. Still, her friends persisted and she took careful consideration before deciding it was the right choice to make.
