    The Hall Tree in Centerville carries a wide variety of women’s clothing.   Owner Emilly Hanes purchased the store two years ago after working at the store part-time for about five years.   “I’ve always liked clothing,” say Emily.  “When Karen Tisue (former owner) asked if I wanted to buy the store, I decided to take her up on it.”

    Since purchasing the store, Emily has directed her inventory towards a little younger shopper.   She describes the clothing she carries as trendy, fashionable and unique.  She sells dress clothes and casual wear.   Jeans are her biggest seller.

    “We get a lot of people from out of town who are surprised to find a store like this in a smaller town like Centerville,” she notes.   “To carry this kind of inventory we have a good mix of local and out-of-town shoppers.”

    Emily says she loves the freedom of owning her own business but admits that there are challenges that come with that as well.  “It’s exactly what I want to be doing, so it’s all worth it.”

    The Hall Tree has four part-time employees.    Store hours are Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
