A-N-V's Maternity Shop
SBDC assists home-based store in move to downtown
529 6th St. Alamosa, CO 81101
Her goal is to make it convenient for pregnant women to shop for clothes without having to buy clothes online (that might not fit) or have to drive out of the Valley to shop.
Vanessa and Aaron both grew up in Alamosa and want to see more retail options here in a vibrant downtown.
Vanessa worked with Donna Wehe at the Small Business Development Center to set up a store in their home to explore the challenge of opening a retail store before re-locating to downtown. She learned how to find vendors for inventory, find equipment to make tags, racks, displays, and of course how to register her business and track income and expenses.
