Bella Couture Opens in Owego

Owego, NY (WBNG Binghamton) A boutique in Owego was open for less than a month when the flood waters rushed in. But now, Bella Couture is back in business.

The child and baby clothing store opened up on North Avenue in August, just weeks before September's historic rains.

Business started off well for the small shop, leaving workers determined to repair all the damages.

"Everything that got ruined by the flood, I had to throw out," said owner Rochelle Pursell. "And we had to redo the walls and repaint and replace the carpeting and reorder stuff and it took a while to get everything back in the store and to re set up everything."

The boutique is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

You can contact owner Rochelle Pursell by calling 607- 727- 9450, or by visiting PageantPosh.com

The shop expects new inventory, such as children's furniture, in the coming weeks.
