SCOOBIE has been open for seven years and has been a part of multiple co-op spaces around the KC Metro Area (from downtown KC, to Leawood to the West Bottoms). I have also helped market our business by popping-up shop at events big and small, and at one point offered personalized style services. I have worked out of our home office in Prairie Village for the past seven years, and now is time for the business to have a space of its own. It has been a goal of mine since the business started to have my own storefront. I also recently re-introduced our online shop (whose selection will continue to grow with the Prairie Village space). The store is now open Tuesday-Saturday 10am-6pm and we also host private events for small groups and fundraisers! Stop in and say hi! We put out new arrivals on the floor every single day!
My name is Sarah Jabbour (nicknamed SCOOBIE in high school) and I truly am in love with fashion! It is a genuine passion of mine that I want to share with others. I have worked in the retail world since I was fourteen and have always loved coordinating outfits and helping people look and feel their best. I have worked everywhere from Limited Too, to Nordstrom, to lululemon to local boutiques in both Kansas City and Lawrence while attending college. It is so rewarding to see the confidence in someone once he/she is in a well fitted and styled outfit. I have been able to create my own style and develop our own brand through our locations, and I love sharing our finds with all our amazingly supportive customers—they truly make my world go around!
I started the business seven years ago as a side hustle while working a full-time marketing job, with the hopes of one day being able to open a store of my own. After the first three years I was able to leave my 9-5 job to continue to grow and expand the business with the continued goal of one day having my own storefront. It has been a long road to get to this point, but so glad the past has led us to the Prairie Village space today! My husband and I have beautiful 2-year-old twin girls (and a baby boy on the way). Our family is very much a part of the Prairie Village community and with living just a few houses up from the Prairie Village shops, we walk to the shops multiple times a week. I have loved getting to know the shop owners in the center, and it is an honor and a privilege to now be amongst this prestigious group of businesses-truly a dream come true!
In addition to sharing the business side of our lives, I also like to share our infertility journey in order to bring awareness about infertility and to support those currently going through their own journeys. While our infertility journey continued after the girls (Olive and Maeve), we miraculously were able to conceive a baby boy (Blaize) born August 2019! We will continue to share our past and continued journeys to shed light on the issue that affects so many.
I cannot thank our loyal customers enough for supporting us and cheering us on for the last seven years, along with my amazingly supportive husband and wonderful family—without each and every one of you, we would not be here today. We love sharing our space with all of you and interacting with our wonderful and loyal customers and friends! To see more about us, the brand, and the construction of our store in action, follow us on Instagram , facebook and our website/online shop.
Thanks for checking us out and following along with us!
