When one door closes

Artesia shutters, moves online

When one door closes apparently a website opens. After a dozen years in business Artesia on Johnston is slated to close the brick and mortar store in favor of the online store.

The online store for Artesia is not a new endeavor for the trendy establishment. Combine the website's growing success with owner Gina Babineaux's move to Texas and it's a recipe for web-focused business.

In a letter to customers, Gina says "while we will deeply miss our retail storefront, we are excited for the opportunities that our online store will offer for both our family and our customers."

She notes the same service, style and selection will be available at the online boutique.
