The Morganton City Council approved another small business loan Monday night to help local entrepreneurs open a new business in downtown. Council approved a $15,000 CDBG Small Business Loan to Alexander Brooke Boutique, located at 115 N. Sterling St. The shop will offer reasonably priced, boutique brand “mommy and me clothing” for babies, teen girls, and women. They will also do monogramming and offer a plus-size line. Lindsey Ruggles and Brittanee Garrison, sisters, will be managing and operating the store. “This building is going to be beautiful,” Lindsey said.
