CLOTHING STORES COMBINE TO BECOME RAGZ N' BAGZ

By Ellen Babin

Pilot staff writer

"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.

    China's central bank governor Zhou Xiaochuan warned on Sunday that the country needs to be vigilant for signs of deflation and said policymakers were closely watching slowing global economic growth and declining commodity prices.

  • ChemChina chairman says hopes to re-list Pirelli in Italy
    The chairman of China National Chemical Corp (ChemChina) said on Sunday he hopes to re-list Italy's Pirelli (PECI.MI) on the Italian stock exchange after his firm agreed earlier this month to acquire the world's fifth-largest tire maker. Ren Jianxin also warned that a counterbid for Pirelli would hurt the Italian firm's investors and long-term strategy. ChemChina has agreed to become majority owner of Pirelli as part of a multi-layered 7.3 billion euro ($8 billion) deal, putting one of Italy's oldest household names in Chinese hands. On Thursday, Pirelli CEO Marco Tronchetti Provera told Reuters his firm is not talking to others about a possible counterbid.
  • Stocks likely to drift as investors await Fed, earnings
    Wall Street investors may find little reason to make big moves next week as they await monthly U.S. jobs data and any news that could change expectations for the first interest rate hike in almost a decade. The Labor Department report is due on Friday, when the stock market will be closed for Good Friday, leaving investors unable to trade on the data until the following week. In the meantime, investors will continue adjusting to lowered earnings forecasts for the first quarter and the uncertain direction of the dollar. Stocks have trended downward since rallying on the Federal Reserve's March 18 statement, in which it suggested a less-aggressive approach to raising interest rates than investors had expected.
