Maternity clothing store new face in downtown Martin

MOM TO BE – Amanda Davis of Martin is expecting twin girls this spring and said she was pleased to find a local store that offered maternity clothing right here in Weakley County. She spent the afternoon trying on some selections at Moms 2B.
Maternity stores are becoming more and more scarce as the number of women having children hasn’t decreased. At one time, this posed a dilemma for moms to be in the region. With the opening of a new maternity clothing store in downtown Martin, the biggest wardrobe dilemma for expectant mothers will be dressy, casual or dressy casual.
Moms 2B store owner Myla Fuqua said the dilemma of scarcity is what prompted her decision to open a clothing store on Lindell Street in downtown Martin that caters specifically to pregnant women.
“My daughter was having children and there was nowhere to buy maternity clothing. She wore larger size clothing, but nothing really fit her correctly. I wanted to offer a service that would allow women to have clothing that fit and they felt good in while being pregnant,” Fuqua commented. The store offers new, factory seconds and consigned maternity clothing. Fuqua said because it is costly to purchase clothing to only be worn such a short period of time, she recommends taking advantage of the consignment opportunities at Moms 2B.
The store accepts consignment Tuesday through Friday after 1 p.m. and all day on Saturday. It is open Tuesday through Saturday from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m.
“I love downtown Martin. Martin has really worked hard to make downtown a beautiful place and it is very accessible. We have a door on Lindell Street and a back door with a large parking area,” Fuqua added. Maddy Rosenbaum is Fuqua’s assistant.
Visit the store at 228 S. Lindell St. or call 587-5117 for more information.
A grand opening is set for Saturday, Feb. 19. Special sales will include 20 percent off all merchandise and an additional 20 percent off of winter items. Drawings will take place every hour that day with grand prizes of two diaper bags stuffed with baby items for one baby boy and one baby girl.
