Hannah Hoffman shows off some of the name brand clothing for sale at Hannah’s Threads. The 16-year-old entrepreneur opened the store in December and stocks gently used clothes by American Eagle, Express, Forever 21, Calvin Klein and more. The store is located at 305 N. 2nd St in the same building as Stitch in Time.
IRON RIVER—    A 16-year-old Lower Michigan girl is owner of Iron River’s newest clothing boutique.
“I like to dress uniquely, and I think the clothes that I sell make that possible,” Hannah Hoffman said. “The nice thing about the clothes at Hannah’s Threads is that you probably won’t see anyone else in town wearing the same thing. They are major brands, but it is all different.”
Apart from her studies at Edwardsburg High School in downstate Edwardsburg, Hoffman is also taking classes at Southwestern Michigan College in Dowagiac in pursuit of a teaching career. When she has the time, Hoffman also plays tennis and scouts out clothing to send to Iron River.
Hannah’s Threads is located at 305 N. 2nd Ave. in the same building as Stitch In Time Custom Sewing and Knitting. Hannah’s Threads opened in December, and Hoffman said sales have been brisk.
“I went to Camp Bat-awagama since I was 8 years old, and we went up north every summer,” Hoffman said. “I just love it there, but I noticed there weren’t many places to buy the kind of clothes I like. Right now, the store is teenage boys and girls clothing, but I may expand.”
Hannah’s Threads specializes in name brand second-hand clothing including American Eagle, Express, Forever 21, Calvin Klein and more.
“If you are in need of a certain size or style you can request it on your wish list,” Hoffman said.
“Every two weeks we ship in new stock including a box of requested sizes and styles. This is the perfect place to pick up a dress for your next formal dance or just to update your closet.”
