Mudgie’s soft grand-opening set for Saturday

Reporting in Sullivan
There is at least one new store opening this Friday in Sullivan, but for shop owner Robin Vaughn it is a familiar routine. Vaughn has owned and run the Thrifty Boutique for the last five years, first in Decatur before then moving to Arthur. But prohibitive rent prices there recently forced her to close up shop and look elsewhere for options, which brought her to Sullivan.
However, Vaughn realized an immediate conflict: there is already a similarly named shop in town. With the proposed opening date of July 18 fast approaching, she needed a new, unique name for her new location.
