    Celebrating the transformation of Sisterhood Boutique

    Day 49

    The Big Reveal

    The transformation of Sisterhood Boutique‘s space comes at a big moment for the business – they are evolving, growing and changing. And now the store looked and felt like this behind-the-scenes reality. And that calls for a celebration.

    After a week of “refreshing,” we decided to host a reveal party for the youth in the internship program. These young people are the future of the store – so we figured they should be the first to experience it!

    We got everyone together and ordered pizza (of course!), a salad, chips, soda, and chocolate – everything every great party needs. We had a pizza party and took some celebratory confetti photos outside the store.

    Interns and staff alike were overjoyed at the changes. “I want to work tomorrow! Like, I just want to be here!” Said Yasameen, after seeing the space come together.

    “Teenagers started this place, and it felt like that too. But it’s more mature now so this fits what our evolution has done as well,” said Alexis.

    It’s so important to recognize and celebrate big changes in a business. And having an intentional reveal with the future leaders of the community was the perfect way to do it – it will have a lasting impact for those who were a part of it.

    Thank you to EVERYONE who made this dream possible, including The Progressive North, Pillsbury United Communities, Wells Fargo, and all our incredible teammates.

    But we have one more trick up our sleeve…and one more surprise! Check back in tomorrow for our last day at the boutique.
