Living in Louisiana, one doesn’t hear the words “Snow Day” very often, much less twice in a week. But this year has been a little different. Last Wednesday, as I prepared to go to a Bossier Chamber Ribbon Cutting for Beautiful Bowtique, the entire city of Bossier was in the midst of a white wonderland. Of course, I have never been one to fare well with being told not to do something. I still planned to go, as a little snow can’t keep me away from seeing the growth of new business. I called first and was so happy to hear an answered phone. Yay, let business go on! Unfortunately the ribbon cutting had been postponed.
Beautiful Bowtique is a children’s consignment boutique owned by Ashley Carpenter. They offer Bossier City and the surrounding areas a fun friendly place to buy and resell their gently used childrens items! They also carry one of a kind boutique outfits, hair bows, Melissa and Doug Toys, and a candy shop.
I will be making a stop soon to check it out. Beautiful Boutique is located at 1701 Old Minden Road, Suite 20B, phone number 318-525-7174. Stop by and tell Ashley that you read my blog.
2nd Snow Day Cancellation:
Here we are a week later, and once again the prediction is for SNOW! School is closed in preparation for this winter worrisome weather. (let’s hope the snow day wasn’t wasted). Today, I planned to attend the Bossier Chamber Ribbon Cutting of Velocity Care Urgent Treatment Center and once again the snow has put a damper on my anticipation of seeing a new business celebrate. Not to worry, I saw a Facebook post from a friend this morning saying that she received great treatment from Velocity Care. A little snow prediction didn’t shut them down!
Velocity Care is a walk-in Medical Clinic for adults and pediatrics. They are physician owned & staffed by emergency medicine board certified physicians.
Velocity Care offers a fast and convenient alternative to long waits in the ER for non-life threatening injuries and illnesses. Velocity Care is fully licensed to dispense medications that are commonly used in this field of practice (i.e. Antibiotics, muscle relaxers, cough medications, etc.). What a GREAT idea – no more long waits at the pharmacy!
From everything I’ve heard this place is a great addition to the medical community in Bossier City. Next time you need urgent care, think Velocity Care. Velocity Care Urgent Treatment Center is located at 2151 Airline Drive, Suite 700, next to 2 John’s Steakhouse, phone: (318) 550-2176. Tell them you read my blog.
Snow or no snow . . . I’ll see ya around Bossier,
