Jewelry store opens in Dexter Crossing Shopping Center

By Lizzy Alfs

Dexter’s Cleaning Goddesses owner Melissa Duncan has taken her jewelry business to a new level.

After operating the Jewelry Box Boutique in a shared space with her cleaning business for 10 months, Duncan is opening a brick-and-mortar jewelry store Friday in the Dexter Crossing Shopping Center, the Dexter Patch reports.

Still named the Jewelry Box Boutique, the store is between H&R Block and GNC in the shopping center off Dexter-Ann Arbor Road, according to the report. Her cleaning business will remain at its current location on Ann Arbor Street.

The Jewelry Box Boutique will carry jewelry, purses, accessories and gifts.

Ann Arbor real estate company Oxford Companies, via its investment arm, purchased the 70,000-square-foot Dexter Crossing Shopping Center in April.

It has since invested in a series of improvements and is actively pursuing tenants.
