E. Mountain Street in Stone Mountain Village is a little more trendy and urban these days. That's where you'll find Dolce Boutique and Xiomara Smith, who recently spoke with Patch about the shop:
Patch: When did you decide to open Dolce Boutique?
Smith: Dolce Boutique opened in Stone Mountain Village in April 2012.
Patch: What were you doing before you started your business?
Smith: I was a SBA underwriter for business loans and portfolio manager.
Patch: Describe the type of clothing you sell.
Smith: Our store sells Trendy, Urban, and Alternative wear. Some consider Urban as "baggy clothing" but that is not the case. We mean Urban in the sense of City Life.
Patch: Why did you decide to open Dolce Boutique in Stone Mountain Village?
Smith: It's a quaint city, with lots of hidden secrets, some new and some old and I wanted us to be part of that. I felt the city lacked fashion retail shopping, there was more specialty shopping, and so I wanted to add to the great things the city has to offer from a fashion standpoint.
Patch: How has the reception been to your store so far?
Smith: People love the store and they come back!
Patch: What are some of your future goals for Dolce?
Smith: We hope to open another location next year.
Dolce Boutique is located at 5336 E. Mountain St., Stone Mountain, GA. 30083.
