Sarah Jabbour has always dreamed of opening her own women’s clothing boutique.
For the past seven years, Jabbour has operated Scoobie, a pop-up shop she brought to events and co-op boutiques such as The Garment District in downtown Kansas City. Scoobie started as a side hustle for Jabbour, who previously worked at Nordstrom and Lululemon.
Now Scoobie is Jabbour’s full-time job — she recently opened her first standalone boutique at The Prairie Village Shopping Center. Scoobie’s location, between Caffeteria and Golden & Pine, is ideal for Jabbour. The mom to 2-year-old twin girls with a baby boy on the way lives with her husband in the neighborhood.
Scoobie sells flowy dresses, vintage-inspired T-shirts, rompers and a variety of skirts (from denim minis to leopard-print midis). Most of the pieces cost less than $100, and all are hand-selected by Jabbour, who travels the country collecting inventory.
Jabbour plans to use the space for private events and fundraisers. The Scoobie inside The Garment District will remain open.
