Downtown boutique adds online store and private label

Pollux Clothing Co. a women’s boutique in downtown Grand Junction, is celebrating 15 years in business by opening an online store and adding a private label.

“I’ve wanted to have an online store for years, and our 15th anniversary seemed like the perfect time to do it,” said owner Ivy Parnasius.

The Web site at www.polluxclothing.com offers a variety of dresses, tops, bottoms and accessories. Clothing sold at the store will be labeled under the Pollux brand.

Parnasius opened the store in July 2000 in a 100-square-foot space in the back of a vintage clothing store in downtown Grand Junction. As the operation grew, Parnasius twice moved and now operates at 321 Main St. In 2009, she opened a second location in Montrose at 433 Main St. “Now we’re going global with the addition of the online store and private label,” she said.
