Epitome Boutique Seeks New Location to Boost Sales

By: Janel Forte

The Epitome Boutique is a small business ran by Laricia Chandler that offers urban clothing, shoes and accessories. While the boutique tends to be more profitable in the summer, a recent slump caused by the opening of new shopping centers in the South Loop neighborhood and Hyde Park is forcing the boutique to find a new location that’s more accessible to its clients.
