Get to know the owner
Read below to find out a little more about the store owner at Osseo, Carrie Ashton.
Q: How did you get involved with Bellies to Babies and what made you want to be an owner?
A: I had worked many years in the retail industry and was looking for a new opportunity and to be an owner in a business I believed in. After searching and searching several concepts, I came upon Bellies to Babies and fell in love with the model and the customer base. I knew there was a lot of opportunity in this market and wanted to be a part of it.
Q: Tell us a little about your background.
A: I graduated college with an elementary education degree and went on to teach kindergarten in my early professional career. From there, I worked at several child development centers and even owned my own daycare before going into the retail industry at Men's Warehouse. Outside of work, I love spending time with my children and enjoying the beautiful summers!
Q: What is a fun story you have about your store?
A: When I was first opening the store in early June, I was at Fedex ordering my business cards and a pregnant lady standing in line behind me overheard me mention that we are a maternity clothing store and was so excited to hear we were opening in her neighborhood. Two days later, she came in the store and could not believe the huge selection we had and found several outfits for herself. I love telling this story because wherever I am, I love to talk about my store and help pregnant women find stylish clothing for a great price!
Q: What style do you think is the cutest for a pregnant lady this season?
A: Definitely the maxi dress! Not only are maxi dresses slimming, but they are very comfortable and look great during all stages of pregnancy.
We hope you enjoyed learning a little about Carrie and stop in her store in Osseo to say hi!
