It was all about location, location, location when the folks at Partners’ LTD decided to move from their Arnould Blvd. storefront to Parc Lafayette.

“The sales floor is bigger, and the floor plan is more open. It’s a great location and a good opportunity for us,” says manager Nick Usie.

The Usie family wanted to own rather than rent and found the option to build a free-standing store on a lot in Parc Lafayette. The doors officially opened Saturday at the new location while they continue to wrap up sales at the old store through the weekend. The moving sale includes items 25 to 75 percent off with pieces as low as $25.

In the new location, Usie says to expect the same beloved brands Partners’ has offered for years along with some new blood.

“We wanted something fresh and some new brands … a little more trendy brands to go with our classic lines,” he says.
