Better With Bubbli Boutique, a women’s boutique with the motto, “Life is better with a glass of champagne and a new outfit,” will be hold a grand opening on Nov. 18. The business will be the first to open in the new Wabash Crossing Mall, located at 3852 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 beginning in March 2021.
“We were overwhelmed to have such an amazing first year as a brick-and-mortar location,” Pecka said. “With continued success of our weekly collections, I noticed the need for a larger space for both our customers and our employees. We utilized our back room for extra stock as well as photoshoots, so it was time for an upgrade in square footage.”
Pecka temporarily shifted her offerings back to online-only while waiting for construction to be completed on the new retail center. Better With Bubbli Boutique’s grand opening will be Friday, Nov. 18, from 10 a.m.-6 p.m.
