Phoebe & Co.
Amanda Ash started her first business April 1 with the launch of Phoebe & Co., an online women’s boutique. Ash, owner and sole employee of the Springfield business, said sells women’s contemporary clothing, including dresses, shorts and shirts, as well as jewelry and hair accessories. Sizes and selection for products, which generally range $30-$60, will expand in the coming weeks. She said she spent roughly $1,200 on inventory and the website to launch the business. It’s not a full-time pursuit for Ash, who works as a social media moderator for online travel agency Ash said she obtains products for Phoebe & Co. through FashionGo, an e-commerce wholesale clothing marketplace with access to hundreds of manufacturers and wholesalers. Her 10-month-old Rottweiler mix, Phoebe, served as inspiration for the store name. Ash said she wants the store to serve as a place of inclusion for all women, adding it currently sells fashion in sizes S-3X.

Art Hurteau and Marty Prather of A&M Pizza Inc. opened a Domino’s restaurant Nov. 26 at 623 S. Springfield Ave. in Bolivar. About a month later, the Domino’s franchisees opened their 32nd store, and eighth Domino’s in Springfield, at 3308 W. Chestnut Expressway. The Bolivar eatery has an 18-seat capacity in roughly 1,850 square feet, Hurteau said. Due to COVID-19 concerns, dine-in options are currently on hold, but delivery and takeout continue. Hurteau said Morelock Builders & Associates Inc. served as general contractor on the project, with design work by Burns Architecture. Startup costs, including construction, equipment and franchise fees, were around $1.2 million, he said. Menu items, priced at $6-$18, include made-to-order and specialty pizzas, hot wings, pastas, oven-baked sandwiches and salads. A&M Pizza operates Domino’s stores in Missouri, Arkansas, Illinois and Indiana.

Revel Advertising
Revel Advertising relocated downtown March 2 to 637 W. College St., Ste. A, from 429 Boonville Ave. Husband-and-wife owners Chris and Nicole Jarratt signed a three-year lease for an undisclosed rate with Paragon Architecture LLC, which owns the 10,000-square-foot building. Revel Advertising leases 2,000 square feet and shares a 1,000-square-foot common area with Paragon, which also moved in March 2. Chris Jarratt said the downtown building it previously occupied was sold to Assemblies of God, precipitating the need to move and a connection with Paragon owner Brad Erwin. Jarratt said relocation costs were roughly $20,000. He said the 10-year-old advertising and marketing agency employs seven and utilizes around five contract workers outside the area. The staff temporarily is working from home amid the coronavirus pandemic, he added.
