Hendrix Village Welcomes New Neighbor

CONWAY, Ark. (September 26, 2012) - The Village at Hendrix will soon have a new neighbor when Monrow, a new women's boutique, opens in Market Square, adjacent to Village Books.

According to owner Caroline LeVan, Monrow will feature unique clothing and accessories for women of all ages.

The 2,400-sq. ft. store will open in November. In addition to the boutique, there will be a salon in back of the business, LeVan said.

"I love fashion and I love sales," said LeVan, a Conway native. "With this business, I had an opportunity to do both."

Conway is "a huge market with lots of potential," she added.

The Village at Hendrix was her only location choice, she said.

"There's a whole aesthetic that is different, innovative, and creative," she said. "It's separate from anything else of its kind. There's no comparison between The Village and anywhere."

Ward Davis, CEO of The Village, said, "Monrow will be a wonderful addition to our neighborhood and a great complement to our successful entertainment options."

The Village at Hendrix is a traditional neighborhood development (TND) designed by the renowned New Urban planning firm of Duany-Plater Zyberk and Company and founded by Hendrix College. A 93-acre mixed-used walkable community, The Village combines classic architecture and a commitment to green building principles, offering residential homes and commercial spaces, as well as entertainment and outdoor amenities, including the 18-acre Hendrix Creek Preserve.
