FARGO — A young entrepreneur is poised to open her third store in Fargo by year's end.

McKenzie Kjos, owner of Tootsie's Children's Boutique and Kenzie + Co. Kids Boutique, announced this week she hopes to open Mickey Roo Maternity and Nursery in the BLU 32 development at 4600 32nd Ave. S. Suite 104 by Nov. 1. Mickey Roo will be connected via a walkway to Tootsie's next door. Kjos will own and operate the store with her mother, Janell Kjos.

Mickey Roo will carry cribs and gliders, car seats, strollers, nursery essentials, maternity wear and more, according to Kjos.

Kjos opened her first store , Tootsie's Children's Boutique, in 2017 at 5670 38th Ave. S. in Fargo. She relocated the store to the BLU 32 development in March of 2021 . Tootsie's sells children's clothing in sizes ranging from preemie to size 6.

In April of 2021, she opened Kenzie + Co. Kids Boutique in the former Tootsie's location . Kenzie + Co. picks up where Tootsie's leaves off, carrying children's clothing in sizes 6 to 16.

Kjos said she chose to relocate to BLU 32 because she considers it a "one-stop-shop" for moms.

"I liked that this whole little 45th Street and 32nd Avenue area was geared toward women, so I thought it would be a very good spot for me," she said.
