Zabrina Nelson, Revival Boutique, -Fashion with a Sorted History
Zabrina Nelson has the vision and the tenacity to make things happen, and Revival Boutique is proof of that. She came to Community Futures with a unique retail idea and turned it into reality.
Revival Boutique is a one of a kind shopping experience that will not break the pocket book. Revival Boutique caters to men and women, young and old. The business is located at 2012 Columbia Avenue, Rossland BC in the former Main Stage Gallery building and supplies lightly used brand name clothing, designer clothing, vintage garments, hats by Lillie Cohoe, accessories and jewelry. This is no ordinary store, Revival Boutique has a strong community focus and supports three community organizations including Rossland’s Youth Activation Network, and two Trail based organizations Equine Assisted Therapy and The Family and Individual Resource (FAIR) Society.
Revival Boutique also donates excess clothing to WINS Transition House and donates $2 from each purchase of a Lillie Cohoe hat to a local food bank. Revival Boutique believes in providing quality merchandise at affordable prices while using this platform as a way to reach out and give back to the community. You can find Revival Boutique on Facebook.
Zabrina has this to say about the Self Employment Program: “Community Futures offered me the opportunity to look at my business from every angle ensuring that I had a clear picture of what was to come, what challenges I would be faced with and what the members of the surrounding community's wanted in a retail store.
I came out of the program with a very clear idea of what my business plan was and how to implement it! The financial support offered me a chance to get my business off the ground and relived financial stress so I could invest money back into my business to help it grow.
I highly recommend this program to anyone planning to open a business!”
