The chic boutique originally opened on Haven Street three and a half years ago. They moved to their expanded location on Main Street last June. Owner Julie Centrella has been a Reading resident for 10 years, and has always had a soft spot for fashion. After graduating from Johnson and Wales with a degree in fashion merchandising she worked as a buyer.
"I've always been in fashion," Centrella said.
Before she opened Aine's, she held house parties where she would sell clothes and accessories. According to Centrella, once she knew the demand was there, she opened Aine's Boutique.
"It's fun to have someone come in and leave feeling good about themselves," she said. "There's a lot of retail therapy going on in here."
The name Aine (An-ya), Gaelic for beauty, is the name of Centrella's mother and daughter. A black and white photo of her mother sits on top of the cash register.
