POINT PLEASANT — A new business in the business of home decor has opened on Main Street.
Decor Corner, on the corner of Third and Main Streets in downtown Point Pleasant, had a special ribbon cutting ceremony on Thursday. The business, a joint venture between Alia King and mother Pauletta R. King, is open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Tuesday-Saturday.
Alia said she’s always been fascinated with interior design and has previous experience designing windows for stores like Kohl’s and Deb. Up until recently, she worked at the Wallpaper Outlet store on Main Street which closed earlier this year. Alia has taken what she learned at Wallpaper Outlet and stocked Decor Corner with a variety of wallpaper and wall murals as well as other home decorating options from pillows, to table settings, to curtains, to linens and more. The store has Park brand products, Home Collections Raghu, The Country House Collection and will eventually add Fiestaware.
Alia said what sets her store apart from others is Decor Corner sells all its products under suggested retail.
Another unique aspect of Decor Corner is its private parties where the store provides space for a hostess to invite friends to shop inside the store, typically after hours. At these parties there are light refreshments, a door prize and the hostess receives a store credit and a percentage of what is sold.
In addition, Decor Corner sells jewelry, purses and candles among many other speciality items. The store does bridal, baby shower and house warming registries as well. Another service Decor Corner offers is creating custom wreaths and lanterns for special occasions.
Alia said special orders and custom designs are no problem at her store and if the store doesn’t have what the customer wants, she will track it down through a distributor.
As for why she wanted to start her own small business, Alia said she simply enjoys working in home decor and after years of helping friends create a vision for their homes, she’s now ready to help her customers do the same.
