Bella Me Bella You Owner Susan Steele will be moving out of her current location at 4069 Erie St. to prepare for a transition which includes opening an online storefront.
Steele opened Bella Me Bella You in April 2010 after building up experience in retail management for 15 years. Her shop offered handbags, accessories and jewelry.
“The Willoughby community has been wonderful to me over the past two years,” Steele said in an interview with Willoughby Today. “I look forward to bringing new, fresh ideas that will continue to put the city on the map.”
Her new business plans include developing her own line of one-of-a-kind purses under the name “Suzie Marie Designs” and alterations including hemming, zipper replacements and bridesmaid dress alterations.
Everything in the Bella Me Bella You location is currently 25% off to prepare for the restructuring.
For now, current and new customers can follow developments and request custom, handmade purses and alterations at the Suzie Marie Designs Facebook page.
