We certainly love meeting a fellow female entrepreneur. So, you can imagine our excitement when Barnstable High School graduate Chelsea Hayes used the business acumen she gained at UMASS Lowell to open Chelsea’s Swimwear and Apparel in a seasonal location in West Yarmouth to help locals and visitors find the perfect swimsuit for their favorite Cape Cod on-the-water activities.
After finishing up her first summer as a business owner, her specialty shop has now expanded (yes, already!) into a year-round second location on Hyannis Main Street. Being somewhat sporty herself, Chelsea wanted to widen her brand appeal to include active wear for hiking, biking, running and yoga including Carve, Beyond Yoga and Onzie. The shop also makes an effort to be size inclusive, carrying Plus Active, a line that designs workout wear for women from size 16-32.
We have no doubt that Chelsea who offers impeccable customer service and always has a bright smile on her face, will be here for many sunny…and now snowy…seasons to come.
