New business opens in Uptown Greenville

GREENVILLE, NC (WITN) Business growth is continuing in the Dickinson Avenue area in Uptown Greenville.

Apparel and accessory boutique, “From Marfa,” is the latest retail addition to the up and coming area.

The store offers fashion and gifts for men, women, and children, and takes its name from a creative Texas town known for its arts community.

The store employs 10 people and joins a number of new businesses that have opened their doors along the Dickinson Avenue corridor in the last 2 years.

Store owner Emily Bruch says, “Everyone is really motivating for each other, and everyone wants each other to succeed because we’re all trying to revitalize this area together, so that’s really great to be a part of it.”

Several other retailers have moved into the same block while others are under construction with plans to open in the future.
