Finding the Right Niche in Natchez
Kudzu Cotton Boutique-Natchez, MS
As an MS National Guard veteran and 10-year Registered Respiratory Care Practitioner, Angela Perrin is no stranger to hard work, sacrifice, and determination. After a decade of serving her community through the medical field, Angela wanted to assist them in another way. As a mother and new grandmother, she noticed a lack of in-person clothing stores for new and expectant mothers and their young children. Angela combined her business dreams with her desire to help her community which sparked the idea to open a children’s and maternity boutique in her hometown of Natchez, MS.
Kudzu Cotton Boutique believes in providing for families by being the one-stop-shop for pre and post-pregnancy needs. As a store owner for families, it’s only fitting that Kudzu Cotton Boutique has become a family endeavor. Before opening her storefront in Natchez, Angela’s husband and two sons spent any free time they had remodeling the inside of the store and building shelving, displays, and more. Angela’s mother-in-law, Pam, and two of Angela’s best friends, Jamie and Mandi even helped price, label, and tag inventory as well as assisting in decorating the store. Angela’s daughter, Anna assists with the marketing and social media for the boutique, as well as helping her mom pick out the best inventory for her store.
Kudzu Cotton is one of the only child and maternity clothing stores in the region, but that’s not all that makes it unique. After the first year of business, Angela plans to offer more services to new and expectant mothers, such as non-diagnostic ultrasounds, pregnancy testing, gender reveals, and baby photography. “I wanted to provide the Natchez community with something it currently doesn’t have. We have joined the local chamber, and our community has been so supportive of us since we opened” said owner Angela Perrin.
Kudzu Cotton Boutique is located at 29 SGT Prentiss Drive, Suite 5 in Natchez, MS. You can also view and buy their inventory online through Facebook at @KudzuCottonLLC.
