To clear up some confusion among her customers, Sage Bishop plans to rename her recently opened plus-sized women’s clothing store, Labels Plus, to La Belles.
Bishop said the store, located at 1512 Ellis St. in Bellingham, has been well received by customers, but its original name has led some people to think it was a consignment store, such as the two Labels Women’s Consignment Stores that she also owns in town.
“We’re changing the name to La Belles to make it clear this store sells new plus-sized casualwear, such as pants, shirts, sweaters and light jackets,” Bishop said, in a news release. “Our accessories, including jewelry, scarves, hats and more, also are new. Our focus is on new, affordable plus-sized clothing options. We don’t accept consignments at La Belles.”
The name change will be official on Sept. 16.
A grand reopening for La Belles featuring prize drawings will be held Saturday, Sept. 21.
The store is also changing its hours to 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Mondays through Wednesdays, 10 a.m.-7 p.m. on Thursdays and Fridays, and 10 a.m.-6 p.m. on Saturdays. For more information, call 360-656-6175.
