Videos ‘n More in Comox is known for its selection of movies and variety of genres. Customers are finding the store under construction at present. There has been much hammering, painting and re-arranging of the premises. The question is 'Why?'

The video store is introducing a high end consignment clothing boutique to their ‘n More genre. Owner Jean Gibson, manager Shannon Colthorpe and the staff have been completing changes to the business in time for a grand opening slated for April 3. They are planning and organizing shelving and floor layouts, choosing fixtures and colours, painting and hammering nails. It has all become part of their job descriptions.

“We aim to provide designer labels, one-of-a-kind, elegant and casual fashions for both sexes," Colthorpe said. "A possible feature we have in mind is a rack of 'little, black dresses' — the fashion piece that can suit so many different occasions. We even have a Phillip Lim silk jacket and we plan to offer leather bags and belts, unique scarves and accessories along with extraordinary jewelry pieces. We hope to make browsing our stock a delightful experience.”

Staff regard the new addition as an exciting opportunity. If you are looking for something to wear to a special event such as an Oscar party, or to update your wardrobe with classy pieces then the boutique will soon offer you that option.

Hours of operation will be 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesdays to Saturdays.

If you have that high end piece of clothing that does not fit now but was once a 'must have' item in your wardrobe, or accessories that are now languishing in your drawers, it's possible you have just what the new shop is looking for.
