Lisa Kornstein, owner and buyer of Scout & Molly’s Inc. has loved clothes since childhood but never envisioned herself working in fashion. While attending graduate school in South Carolina, she worked part time at a boutique, where she fell in love with selling. Lisa dreamed of starting her own store, a boutique where women would feel comfortable shopping. A place where they didn’t have to worry about what they were wearing when they walked in the store. She envisioned a place where a customer would feel like she was in her best friends closet. A place where they could always count on a friendly face and an honest opinion.
In the spring of 2002, after dreaming about a shop of her own, Lisa finally got up the nerve, took a leap of faith, and opened her boutique Scout & Molly’s. The Scout & Molly’s brand was fresh and people quickly caught on. Customers started to mention they wished they could open their own Scout & Molly’s so Lisa took another leap and decided to license out her business so that she could grow the brand into other markets. Today there are five Scout & Molly’s locations: In Raleigh NC, Charlotte NC, Cary NC and most recently in historic Columbus, GA. Each boutique stays true to Lisa’s original vision, carrying fabulous clothes surrounded by a warm, fun atmosphere. Lisa and her team are excited to be able to offer their amazing sense of style to you anytime day or night via www.scoutandmollys.com online store!
