MARSHALL - If you're looking for decorations for your friend or, say, for your co-worker's "Over the Hill" party, Nadine Kor will have what you are looking for.
Kor will soon open The Party Place, a party supplies store, next to Papa Murphy's on East College Drive.
She plans to be open about late March.
The plan to start a party goods store has been on Kor's mind for a while.
"I've been thinking about it for quite a few years," Kor said.
She had been doing some research online and came across a company that would help her get started. "Marshall doesn't have one, so I thought there would be a need for it."
Kor said she'll have a line of greeting cards, along with several other products.
"We're going to carry party decorations, things for birthdays, showers, weddings, graduations," Kor said.
Kor said she looked at a few locations before settling on the one next to Papa Murphy's.
"I wanted a spot that was going to be seen," she said.
Kor said the company she's been working with to start The Party Place has been very helpful in getting her up and running.
"It gets you hooked up with vendors," Kor said.
Kor said she'll be busy when the store opens in a few weeks.
"I'll be doing most of the hours myself," Kor said.
She said that she'll have a couple of part-time employees, and her daughter, Lindsy, will also help out.
