New women’s boutique opens in Hailey
A new women’s clothing boutique has opened at 400 N. Main St., Unit B3, in Hailey. The shop, called Hailey Heritage, is owned by Raiza Giorgi, a newer transplant to the valley.
“While my family and I are new to the valley as residents, my aunt, cousins and (late) grandmother have lived in Ketchum and Hailey since the 1970s. My husband was offered an amazing job here and we decided to make the move last summer,” Giorgi stated in a press release.
Originally from the Santa Ynez Valley in California, Giorgi recently sold the Santa Ynez Valley Star newspaper at the beginning of 2022. With her new business, she hopes to support local artists and “provide a place where women of all ages can find something they love and won’t break the bank.” The store also offers online shopping at www.haileyheritage.com.
