Devils Lake boutique opening Fargo shop


A Devils Lake boutique is expanding to downtown Fargo.

Boots and Heels will open a second location at 410 Broadway N., owner Amber Sander said in a Facebook announcement. She told the Herald she expects the store will open in April.

The store that sells shoes and other boutique items first opened in 2011 at 419 Fourth Ave. N.E. in Devils Lake. Sander and her husband, Ben, moved to Fargo last year for a job he accepted with Amity Agco.

The Devils Lake store will remain open. Boots and Heels will take over the space for c.lizzy’s, an art and gift shop that will retain its studio in the back of the store. C.lizzy’s closed in November.
