Ally and Nathan Greene are contributing to the business section of Sutton with their newly opened children’s clothing store. The business, Whiskey Ways, sits beside the movie theater. The two have maintained an online store for a while and found it profitable enough that they can manage a physical site. They also decided to open the store so they will have more time with family. Ally worked as a behavioral therapist, and Nathan, who will help manage the new store, worked in the oil and gas field.
Ally, the owner, explained her purpose in selling children’s clothing. “We sell upscale children’s clothing at a lower price than can be found in other stores carrying the same type. I’ve seen families struggle to clothe their children because of the cost and recognize the need for what we offer,” she said. “I wanted to offer them the better clothing at a price they can afford.”
The store offers a wide variety of clothing and accessories for both boys and girls from newborns to ages 11-12. That includes dresses, tops, jeans and other clothing for girls as well as shirts and other tops along with pants for boys. A feature among the merchandise that may be of special interest is “Mommy and Me” outfits with many options, the owner pointed out. Also available are children’s jewelry, sunglasses, hair bows, and other accessories.
Questioned about the name of the new business, the owner explained, “We were trying to come up with something catchy, and someone said ‘Whisky Ways.’ I said, ‘It makes me happy and we’re going to go with it.’” She added, “People will certainly remember it.”
The store will be open Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m.
