Kouros & Kore Kouros & Kore owner Arturo Casillas cuts the ribbon at the local shop’s grand reopening Saturday as, from left, Melissa Talavera, Boo Boo Chavarria, Martha Chavarria, David Grousnick, Michelle Casillas and Kristen Juarez look on. Kouros & Kore, a women’s apparel and accessories boutique, is now located at 325 W. Main St. Apparel sizes range from small to 3X, and the shop is working to add men’s graphic tees. “Our goal in the store is to bring the best quality products to exceed customers’ expectations at prices that are reasonable,” Casillas said. “We bring only a small amount of each style so that not everyone in this small town owns the same thing. We constantly receive new styles, and we stay on top of what’s trending to offer the latest fashion to Artesia from Los Angeles. We plan on expanding our product lines so that we have something to offer to everyone!” Kouros & Kore is open from 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. Tuesday-Friday and 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. Saturdays.

Heritage upgrade nears completion

Artist Kelly Klein stands atop the design she created for the new floor surface at Heritage Walkway. Not only will the new flooring contribute to the beauty of the walkway, the material out of which it is created will make the surface safer and more durable. Rough Stock Liners, owned by Brad Knowlton, is installing the surface. “It is a spectacular addition to the artwork currently in the walkway,” said Artesia MainStreet Manager Rebecca Prendergast. “We cannot wait for people to see it, and thanks for being patient as we make these upgrades.” Heritage Walkway’s renovations are scheduled to be completed this week.
