Uniquely You celebrates five years in Storm Lake

Thursday, October 11, 2007

Uniquely You is a small Storm Lake boutique that provides products for women after their fight with breast cancer, offering private fittings and in home visits. Uniquely You is part of Sports Rehab and Professional Therapy Association.

Sandy Demers and Melissa Green now run the little boutique and are proud to have been open for five years.

"We have a full line of products available for women," Demers said. "The products have grown over the years."

Green, who was certified for fittings, finds the work very rewarding.

"There is no way I could imagine what it would be like to be in their shoes," Green said. "The other day I was helping with a fitting and the woman walked out with a fitted bra and radiated confidence. It was great to see."

Uniquely You is part of partnership with the Schaller Family Center for Women at the Buena Vista Regional Medical Center, the BVRMC's Oncology Department and East Fifth Salon.

"We do not diagnose here," Demers said. "But with the partnership we are able to send people to the places they need to go for what they need. It's a great partnership."

Uniquely You is continuing an open house today and women can sign up for a special giveaway. Five bras and two rugs that have pink ribbons are special prizes. So stop in and enjoy a cookie and some pink lemonade.
