Northern Liberties’ first fashion boutique is opening this Saturday (April 30). 70SIX Boutique is a brand new boutique that features women’s fashion, accessories, home décor, and gifts all under $100, presented by owner Lindsey McKinney.
The grand opening this Saturday is at 215 West Laurel Street from 2:00p.m. – 4:00p.m. Shoppers can enjoy complimentary champagne, 10% off shopping, and a chance to win prizes.
McKinney’s goal for the store is to create a space where customers feel welcomed and supported in finding their personal style. The store inventory includes everything from activewear to special occasion wear, and everything in between. It is important to McKinney that they provide our customers with the ability to pick up last minute items for special events or gifting, but ultimately they want 70SIX to be a place where customers can conveniently shop for any of their everyday wardrobe needs.
The owner, Lindsey McKinney, started noticing that although online shopping is literally at everyone’s fingertips, it can be very inconvenient and unsustainable in many ways. She was spending hours browsing vast online websites, deciding what to order and spending money on shipping, just to then have to make another trip to the post office to return the items that didn’t work out. She realized that having a neighborhood clothing store would solve some of these problems, and that’s why 70SIX was born!
Lindsey chose to open the shop in Northern Liberties after moving to the neighborhood from Fishtown in early 2021. She said, “I realized that the neighborhood needed more retail being that it is so densely populated with busy students, young professionals, and growing families. I’m so excited that I get to immerse myself into the community and meet new people at the store everyday.”
She added, “I have always wanted to start a business and I’ve always loved clothes. When I decided to leave the education field, I knew that it was time to give opening a boutique a shot.”
Opening hours for the launch of 70SIX Boutique are Wednesday to Saturday, 11:00am to 7:00pm, and Sunday, 12:00pm Noon to 5:00pm. Visit the website here: https://shop70six.com/.
