Ribbon Cutting Set for Bitchin’ Britches Boutique in Centralia


The Centralia-Chehalis Chamber of Commerce will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony for Bitchin’ Britches Boutique — formerly Sparkles N’ Spurs Boutique — at 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 22.

The business is located at 1210 Lum Road in Centralia. 

Owner Melinda Wilkes will be on hand to celebrate the rebranding and new name of her boutique with drawings, prizes, swag bags and refreshments.

Wilkes bought Sparkles N’ Spurs Boutique Jan. 1, 2019. The business used to be a wedding and prom dress boutique but has since transformed into a women’s retail boutique specializing in designer jeans and chic/country western fashion for women of all ages, according to a news release from the chamber. Its offerings include a large selection of stylish plus size fashions, according to the release. 

Wilkes offers free hemming for in-store purchases.

The name “Bitchin’ Britches” comes from Wilkes’ mobile shop which she would set up at vendor events and nods to her selection of designer jeans, or “Bitchin’ Britches.”
