Ribbon Cutting Ceremony – Josephine’s

A ribbon cutting ceremony was held this morning for Laurel’s newest business, Josephine’s. The store’s owner, Miss Jo, greeted members of the community, the Jones County Chamber of Commerce and Mayor Melvin Mack. She shared her story of always wanting her own boutique. She explained how life was full with raising her children and not having the time to fulfill her dream…until now. 

Josephine’s, located at 528 North 15th Avenue in Laurel, is a sophisticated women’s clothing boutique. Pastor Rayborn Huff of Christian Life Church in Glade gave the invocation and prayed a special prayer of blessing over the new business venture and the City of Laurel. Chamber of Commerce director, Larkin Simpson, presented Miss Jo a certificate and her “first dollar of clear profit” on behalf of the Jones County Economic Development Authority.
