According to George Backus, owner of Sonoma Florist at the “Y” in Soldotna, their all new clothing store; It’s All About Me, is really all about you. “We hope to be able to give people the opportunity to express their individuality. The concept is that everyone has their own likes and dislikes and the way we dress projects the way we want other people to see us, so our new store It’s All About Me is all about the unique kind of apparel and brand names that young people haven’t had available locally,” explained Backus. The new It’s All About Me is just three doors down from Sonoma Florist in Soldotna and Backus says he and his wife Tammy have spent a lot of time listening to their customers and getting feed back about items that are and are not available in the local area, “It’s an area I’ve been in before and we’re looking forward to doing more of it in the future. We really like Soldotna so we wanted to invest and expand our business into unique clothing lines with brands that really are important to the young generation like Gap jeans, Express, Baby Fat, South Beach, and Echo Red, as well as some very nice ladies fashion lines,” said Backus.

Backus already has ideas for expanding in the future and is even looking into creating his own It’s All About Me label. The boutique style store is staffed with very helpful young people like Amanda Mackey, a senior at Skyview High School and is open daily Monday through Saturday from 10:00am to 6:00pm.
