Heidi Hulse had finished up her Master’s Degree and had a momentous choice to make…the nearest job would have been an hour commute away. Heidi choose instead to use her education within her community, and fulfill a perceived need – she knew from experience that the closest place to shop for children’s clothing was over 50 miles away – so she opened a delightful boutique that catered to the local community. Family was an important consideration as well, and to honor this priority the boutique name is the combination of her two children’s middle names – Haylee Nicole and Hunter Jordan.
Nicole Jordan’s Children’s Clothing Boutique is located in charming and historic Mount Vernon, Ohio – founded over 200 years ago – an important stop along the railroad that connected Pittsburgh to Chicago and St. Louis. One of Heidi’s favorite things about her decision to open Nicole Jordan is the friends she has made within the community. She is constantly running into customers and their children around town. The children love the store (especially her toy room!) and the dad’s know her because “You’re the one that has the store where my wife spends her money!” Heidi loves the craziness of “Sale Days” and wondering “What is going on here???” She also loves “Grandmas with a ‘shopping problem!” One of Heidi’s biggest ‘perks’ is having flexibility, including the ability to have her children with her at the store. (Although Heidi does confide that “Some days I don’t always feel that way!”)
Customer comments prove that Heidi has done a great job with her decision:
“For the best dress selection: The service is very personalized and the hand-picked selection is adorable. From the moment you walk in you know you are in a special place.”
“Great place to buy children’s clothes: I am always pleased when I shop at Nicole Jordan’s. She carries beautiful dresses for infants.”
Nicole Jordan is known for special occasion clothing, including Communion, Easter and Christmas dresses. Heidi’s impressive personalized service is another attractive reason to visit the store. She also is pleased and happy to accept phone orders! If you are visiting this pleasant area north of Columbus Ohio drop in and say hello – Heidi will be happy to make you feel like a local!
