One of Patterson’s newest businesses, Fashion 911 boutique, is hosting the next Patterson-Wesley Chamber of Commerce mixer and meeting.

Chamber members are invited to the store’s ribbon cutting and grand opening and can enjoy hors d’oeuvres and see what the store offers from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 31, at 355 E St., Ste. B.

Gwynderlyn Patreac, who opened the boutique in September, stocks women’s clothing, such as jeans, dresses, blouses, leggings and sweaters. She also has plenty of accessories on her shelves, including purses, shoes, belts, glasses and stockings.

“I’m trying to get the feel of what the community likes,” Patreac said Monday, Jan. 28. “I’m trying to cater to every woman.”

Toward that aim, Patreac will present a fashion show at 4 p.m. Feb. 23 at the Masonic Hall, 650 M St., to introduce people in the community to the spring fashions she will have in the boutique. More details will be announced as plans are made.

Patreac moved to Patterson a year ago from Livermore, but she has had relatives in Patterson for more than two decades. After she had her baby boy last year, she started thinking of what to do for the community.

“I was making plans to build a business in Patterson and stay close to home,” Patreac said. “I’ve traveled back and forth to visit family here for 20 years and I’ve watched Patterson grow. This is my home now, and this is where I’ll plant my seed and watch it grow.”

Fashion 911, 355 E St., Ste. B, is open from 10:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
