Biz Beat: Swimsuit shop opens at Camp Richardson
Warm, sunny weather is returning after a period of May gloom, and minds again are turning to swimsuits.
Renáe West, owner of Maison Rustique, opened Sunkissed Swimwear & Accessories to fill the summer season’s need.
West said she gave the store a test run during the heat wave in mid-May, and families came in and bought suits. One woman came in and bought two swimsuits, then came back later that day and bought another.
“One can never have too many bathing suits,” said West, who owns 30 bathing suits herself. “Just like shoes.”
West grew up in San Diego and always wanted to own a swimwear store. When a spot opened up next to the ice cream shop in Camp Richardson, she thought it was the perfect location with its proximity to the lakeshore and the increased traffic on Emerald Bay Road in the summer.
Besides swimwear, the store offers jewelry and other summer must-haves, such as summer clothes, beach cover-ups, sandals and baby gifts.
The store, at 16 Emerald Bay Road, is open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. all week. Call (530) 542-1862.
