Better With Bubbli, a women’s boutique with the motto, “Life is better with a glass of champagne and a new outfit,” is preparing to open in a new location. The business will occupy a space in the retail strip center currently under construction on Stadium Drive in front of the AMC Showplace 12 theater.
Owner Randi Pecka launched an online boutique geared to “young, contemporary women” in July 2020 and sold out her first collection within the week, then began offering new arrivals every Tuesday.
Pecka said the new business allowed her to combine her prior experiences working in retail, public relations and graphic design. She also wanted the business to focus on “celebrating life’s special moments, but all those in-between as well.”
A pop-up store at White Oaks Mall over the holiday season led to leasing a space at the mall from March 2021-March 2022.
“We saw the demand for a brick-and-mortar location,” Pecka said, and she decided to relocate when she learned about a new center planned for the far west side of town.
For now, the business is back to online only, but Pecka is hoping for a September opening for the retail store. “I’m super excited and can’t wait for it to be complete,” she said.
