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.

  • Fed outlook and Greece worries hit stocks, dollar up
    Stocks fell in Europe and Asia and the dollar strengthened on Thursday after the Federal Reserve took an upbeat view of the world's largest economy and signaled it was on track to raise interest rates this year. The stronger dollar helped push U.S. oil prices to six-year lows and weighed on the price of gold. The Fed, after a two-day policy meeting, also said it would be "patient" and would take international developments into account in deciding when to raise borrowing costs -- a reference some in the markets saw as meaning any hike could be delayed.
  • Fed upbeat on U.S. economy, cites strong job gains
    The Federal Reserve on Wednesday said the U.S. economy was expanding "at a solid pace" with strong job gains in a signal that the central bank remains on track with its plans to raise interest rates this year. The Fed repeated it would be "patient" in deciding when to raise benchmark borrowing costs from zero, though it also acknowledged a decline in certain inflation measures. After a two-day meeting of the Federal Open Market Committee, policymakers struck an upbeat tone on the U.S. economy's prospects and held to their view that energy-led weakness in inflation would dissipate. "The committee, in fact, was downright bullish on current economic conditions and the outlook," said Paul Edelstein, director of financial economics at IHS Global Insight.
  • Facebook tops Wall Street revenue target in fourth quarter
    Facebook Inc's (FB.O) revenue grew 49 percent in the fourth quarter, as mobile advertising growth helped the world's largest Internet social network beat Wall Street's targets for earnings and sales. Facebook shares fell about 2.6 percent in after-hours trade after vacillating above and below the closing price. Facebook's business has boomed thanks to its mobile ads for smartphones and tablets. Its success contrasts with other established Internet companies such as Google Inc (GOOGL.O) and Yahoo Inc (YHOO.O), which have struggled as advertisers shift more and more to mobile devices from personal computers.
