Juanita’s Fashions R Boutique, located at 9844 W. Florissant Ave. in Ferguson, Missouri, was the largest women’s clothing boutique in the St. Louis area. The store, which has been in operation for 28 years, offered the latest fashions in handbags, accessories, dresses, shoes, hats, and so much more.

Juanita’s Fashions R Boutique was burned down during the Ferguson unrest on November 24, 2014. The building and all contents within were totally lost.
Since this event, the boutique’s owner, Juanita Morris, received tons of support and love throughout the world. Her story was featured on CNN, the Huffington Post, and other media outlets. These acts of compassion greatly encouraged Mrs. Morris to rebuild her business and serve the Ferguson, Dellwood and surrounding communities.

Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. is blessed with the opportunity to adopt Juanita’s Fashions R Boutique as part of our effort to heal and rebuild Ferguson. Through this GoFundMe page, we commit to raising at least $20,000 over a six-month period. These funds will assist the boutique in operating at a temporary location while her permanent site is rebuilt. Specific support areas include: lease/rent support, purchase of office supplies and fixtures, and building and maintenance of an online store.

We ask your support of our Adopt-A-Business program by making a donation through GoFundMe. Together, we will bring Juanita’s Fashions R Boutique back as a Bigger and Better business.
