Flourish Boutique and Gallery is currently located on the Northwest side of South Bend. I have loved being out in the Northwest...my whole family has been longtime "Northwest-siders". My dad is a residential land developer (of Cooreman Neighborhoods) out here in Northwest South Bend, and before that my Grandparents farmed on this side of town...it was only natural then that when I opened my own business it would be on this side of Michiana....
Plus, with my Dad, Steve Cooreman, developing so many residential neighborhoods, out in this side of town, it was a natural fit: I could create a shopping option for the people and families that had moved into the neighborhoods my family had developed...I know many of these families well and love them all...so again perfect fit.

But nonetheless, if you know Michiana well at all you will quickly gather that most retail resides at Grape and Main Street in the Granger/Mishawaka area. My real goal was to first open in Northwest South Bend and then open a second location in that main retail area. But, with the current economic times I think it wise to stick to one location....so when the opportunity arose to have a location in the Granger and Mishawaka area, I had to make a hard decision...but now that it is made I am so incredibly excited to announce that indeed we are moving FLOURISH BOUTIQUE to Granger, Indiana. The new space at 16021 Cleveland Rd./ Granger, Indiana 46530 is at the corner of Cleveland and Gumwood (ie Main Street) where the old antique shop Lavender Lilacs and Old Lace used to be located. The new location not only is in the center of the Michiana retail hub, but it also doubles our store square footage! We are bumping up from 800 square feet to almost double, at just over 1500 square feet.

So what will the new store be like? Fabulous! We are working hard to redecorate the space in a really innovative and beautiful way: think glossy pink hardwood floors, sparkling chandeliers, and other great details:) We really want to make a splash and show Michiana what we have to offer! As always we will offer great clothes, shoes and accessories, as well as stunning jewelry. Our clothing has kind of an anthropologie feel...but a little less boho and more classic...we carry feminine, detailed, unique clothing at a great mix of prices points and sizes. Prices on our clothing range from $20 to $400 with most items being around $100. Sizes range from 2-16.

We hope you will come check FLOURISH out if you live in or visit the Michiana area...for now we are located at 24545 Brick Road in South Bend, Indiana...but in June we will move to 16021 Cleveland Rd. in Granger Indiana...Grangers newest shopping destination!
Here are some images to show our inspiration for how the remodel might turn out....
Can't wait to create our own pretty version!
