Check back next week when we will update you on the pop-up store openings.
Lois Boyer opened her woman's apparel and accessories boutique at the East Bank Village in 1989.
Today, the South Bend business owner is moving that shop from 121 S. Niles Ave. in downtown South Bend to Granger.
She hopes to open at her new location Monday.
Wear-Abouts is leaving the Emporium building -- where she and husband, John, also own the Mole Hole -- and it is moving to Centennial Place. The Talbot's-anchored strip center is located on Cleveland Road between Main Street and Grape Road.
"I am moving reluctantly," Boyer admits, "because there are simply not enough contiguous shops and restaurants or cafes along Niles Avenue to create the magnet needed to draw enough customers."
Hours will be 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, closed Sunday. Boyer plans to add Sunday hours before the holidays.
