Women’s store opens
Birmingham has a new women’s clothing store with the recent opening of fab’rik in the former Artloft location at 123 W. Maple Road. Store manager Kayden Booker explained that fab’rik is a franchise out of Atlanta, with the Birmingham location owned by Carrie Sofikitis. “Anyone can shop here,” Booker said of the store, which features affordable women’s fashion for shoppers “from middle school to older women.” The store offers a wide-range of clothing and accessories, including evening dresses, holiday outfits as well as casual outfits, sweaters, leggings, jeans, tunics, casual and dress-up jewelry, shoes and boots, belts, scarves, hats and candles. “We have a signature scent, called Red Currant,” Booker said. She loves that fab’rik is a one-stop shop at a “friendly price point.” She’s also enjoying the Birmingham/Bloomfield area – as well as the early winter weather – as a recent transplant from Louisiana. “I love this community. Everyone is so nice,” she said. Business Matters for the Birmingham - Bloomfield area are reported by Lisa Brody. Send items for consideration to LisaBrody@downtownpublications.com.
