"We put the fun back in shopping," is the motto of Ragz n' Bagz, located in the Brookings-Harbor Shopping Center in Harbor.

The owners, Jeanne Charleton and Christine Wagner, gave people a taste of what they meant during a ribbon-cutting ceremony Saturday, April 21.

An array of trendy, upscale, women's fashion and an expanded line of Coastal Casual clothing were on display for sale.

The new store combines "the best of two other stores" BG's Boutique and Embellishments, according to the owners.

Store hours are from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays.

  • Fed renews zero rate pledge, but hints at steeper rate hike path
    The Federal Reserve on Wednesday renewed its pledge to keep interest rates near zero for a "considerable time," but also indicated it could raise borrowing costs faster than expected when it starts moving. In a statement after a two-day meeting of its policy-setting Federal Open Market Committee, it announced a further $10 billion reduction in its monthly purchases, leaving the program on course to be shuttered next month. The statement was virtually unchanged from July, though new quarterly projections released with it showed the central bank's view on where interest rates should be in future years is diverging from where financial markets have bet they will be. "While the much analyzed phrase 'considerable time' remained in the FOMC statement, the newly announced scheme for interest rate normalization shows that higher rates are in the cards," said John Kilduff, a partner at Again Capital LLC in New York.
  • Dollar soars to six-year peak on yen after Fed, Tokyo stocks cheer
    SYDNEY/TOKYO (Reuters) - Japanese shares jumped on Thursday after the dollar vaulted to a six-year peak on the yen as the Federal Reserve's outlook for rising rates underlined the diverging path between the United states and the rest of the rich world. Indeed, the hawkish interpretation in currencies came despite the Fed maintaining language suggesting that rate hikes would not happen for a "considerable time." [TOP/CEN] "Overall, we feel that the forward guidance from the Fed is consistent with policy normalisation in 2015," said Dylan Eades, an economist at ANZ. The dollar also flew to 108.69 yen (JPY=), its highest since September 2008 and up from 107.00 before the Fed statement.
