A ribbon cutting ceremony was held at the grand opening of Freckles and Co. on May 3 in downtown Chipley.

The baby boutique is owned by Geri Johnson who opened the store to bring a selection of clothes for kids and babies because there wasn’t much to choose from in the area.

“After having five grandbabies in two years, I figured I needed to open up a store of my  own,†Johnson said. 

Washington County Chamber of Commerce members and city officials were on hand to help cut the ribbon at Chipley’s newest business, Freckles and Co. [DIANE M. MOORE | THE NEWS AND ADVERTISER]

“We are hoping to expand on our selections in the future to include bigger sizes,†said Johnson. “We have a little of everything from sleepwear, swimwear and casual wear.â€
