Hi my name is Simran Canterberry. I am twenty-two years old, and I am the owner The Blue Ridge Boutique. I graduated from Marshall University in 2017. I didn’t have a typical college experience. I always knew I wanted to own a boutique. I was determined to make my dream a reality, cramming as many hours in college to graduate in three years. I majored in marketing with a minor in entrepreneurship. After college, I wanted to open my boutique, but wasn’t quite sure where to start. With patience, things started to come together. On August 17, 2017 I purchased our first six head embroidery machine. Throughout high school I worked many jobs for this moment and saved and saved. On October 9, 2017, The Blue Ridge Boutique officially launched. In a year, I have created a solid customer base all throughout the United States as the boutique continues to grow each and every day. My favorite part of being a business owner is the customers. I love getting to meet so many new friends. The Blue Ridge Boutique is aimed to stylishly accommodate all of their customers no matter what stage in life.
