Morgan Junction’s business district continues its mini-boom.

In a little brick commercial building in south Morgan, at 6959 California SW, Monday is opening day for My Three Little Birds, offering new and “upscale used” clothing, toys, and accessories for children.

We talked this morning with proprietor Jennifer Young (above), who lives in nearby Gatewood.

This is her first venture into retail, though she has worked in business management for years, and cites “great support and mentors” helping get My Three Little Birds launched.

“I have three kids, I really love the community, and wanted to do something to get more involved in the community. (This business) is a great fit for me as a mom.”

The merchandise will target kids from newborn through 12 years old.

Young is clearly excited: “It’s going to be awesome!”

Work on the store is almost done; signage went up earlier this week, and more exterior work is under way today. Monday is mostly intended as the start of a “soft open” week, and then a “grand opening” is planned the following Saturday. Hours will be 10 am-6 pm Mondays-Fridays, 11 am-5 pm Saturdays, 11 am-4 pm Sundays.

SIDE NOTES: Avalon Center, which used to be in the street-front space, hasn’t closed, nor has it really moved – it’s now in the back of the building. And thanks to the eagle-eyed WSB readers who noticed the shop taking shape even before the signage went up and tipped us!
