Meet Montrose Maven GiGi Garcia
Small store retailing is in her blood. Coming from a family of boutique owners, GiGi Garcia hit Honolulu Avenue with It Takes A Village kids’ boutique in 2012 and never looked back. As my next door neighbor at Revelation Tops, I have gotten to know her well these past three years. When GiGi does something she jumps in with both feet and gives it her all. In addition to opening a new business, in a struggling economy mind you, GiGi has given tremendous time and energy serving as vice president of the Montrose Shopping Park board. She takes her role seriously and gets involved serving on the Marketing and Harvest Market committees. She is also an amazing mom to her children. A former stage manager, GiGi is now a stage mom as her daughter McKenna, who recently graced the cover of “Hooligans” magazine, has acquired an agent. This girl has what it takes to be famous one day.
Fall Is In at It Takes A Village Kids
GiGi Garcia has incredible taste. It’s no wonder It Takes A Village has been voted CV Weekly’s best kids store for the last two years. If I were a kid, I would want clothes from her store. It’s fun, hip, colorful and very novel. As we say in the fashion industry, “She’s got the eye.” The look of the store with its bright green walls and giant white sparkly light fixtures suspended from the ceiling say fun! This is the place to get your next baby shower gift and wow your friends with something unique. Now is the time to shop ITAV because the summer goods are all 25-50% off and the new fall fashions have just arrived. The store is stocked with the latest from bestselling brand Mayoral and the window is piled high with funky backpacks for back to school from MoJo and Madpacks. There’s just so much to love here including free gift wrap. Small stores like this are gems in the Jewel City. Thanks for reading and for shopping & dining Montrose. We do it for you!
