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.

MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan slipped 0.2 percent after rising in early trade. Japan's Nikkei (.N225) fell 0.9 percent, extending losses this week to 6.0 percent.
  • Shrinking U.S. trade gap shows economy's underlying strength

While other data on Thursday showed an increase in the number of Americans filing new applications for unemployment benefits, the trend in jobless claims remained consistent with a strengthening labor market. "There is little evidence that the abrupt deterioration in financial market conditions and the heightened concerns about the global economy have begun to affect the U.S. economy," said Ryan Sweet, a senior economist at Moody?s Analytics in West Chester, Pennsylvania.
  • U.S. sanctions against Chinese firms could be next week: FT
    The FT cited three U.S. officials as saying the sanctions probably would come next week in advance of Chinese President Xi Jinping's visit later in the month. Suspicions that Chinese hackers were behind a series of data breaches in the United States have been an irritant in relations between the United States and China. The United States is also considering sanctions against Russian individuals and companies for cyber attacks, U.S. officials have told Reuters.
