From the owners, buyers and staff: Thank you for 5 fabulous years of business with McClain & Co.!
Rather than use the term going out of business as we’ve found ourselves busier than ever with a new website, name brands in apparel and accessories, as well as first time shoppers every day, we’d like you to know:
Owner, Sara McClain has made the decision, after 5 years of owning and operating a very active retail business, she is retiring or “letting go of” McClain & Co. in order to treasure time with her family and continue focusing on her career in mental health.
We’re so grateful to the community and our precious staff for making this store such an incredible success! The rare opportunity to realize ones dreams is an honored gift, and we thank you for it! From the moment we opened to this day, our passion for revitalizing an old historic building into a modern day fashion-filled shop has continued to grow. We are so proud of and look forward to all that downtown Benton has developed alongside us and to what the future holds for this area!
We intend to remain open through most of the summer as we make this transition. We will be promoting an array of boutique merchandise with exceptional sales, and offering select products and lines to new owners, so please come by and shop to take advantage of always great prices while supplies last- or just to say hello and goodbye! We will miss our wonderful customers, vendors and patrons and truly appreciate each one for supporting McClain & Co. and Downtown Benton.
The approximate 5000 sf property will be for sale by owner. Serious inquiries only, please, may be made to Sara McClain via text at 501-837-7272.
