Port Arthur business owner seeks to hire more for Act expansion As a result – Port Arthur News

The name of the 4805 store is certainly unusual.

But Johnisha Warren says the way she imagined Act As a result aligns with the store’s mission: to be a mature woman.

“I was in conflict with someone and she was trying to act hostile,” Warren said. “And I said, ‘I think you need to act like that in the nail shop. And that’s where I pulled Act On It. Growing up as a woman, you sometimes have arguments with other women.

She spoke with a relative, who suggested she not tell this story. But for Warren, it is essential.

“I want to speak my truth,” she said. “I had to show him that this was neither the time nor the place, we have to act on it. I took that name and ran with it.

Warren was working as a fitness trainer in 2019 when she started selling items from the trunk of her car. The following year, she moved into a building on Gulfway Drive. And in March, she moved to another location up the road with space and plans to expand to incorporate a lounge and gym inside the store.

Currently, Act As a result sells unique clothing, shoes, handbags, jewelry, hair highlights, sunglasses, hair accessories, hair tools, eyelashes, and even Bluetooth speakers. .

As a certified piercer, Warren also sells nose ring studs.

But with three open spaces at the back of her store, she has already begun renovations to expand. One space will be a beauty salon.

“I’m looking for hair braiders, people fresh out of cosmetology school, even people who do eyelashes and waxes to be stationed here,” she said. “That’s my goal. I’m looking for people who want to work.

Customers could purchase their items from the store and have them applied there as well.

A second room will eventually become a space whose purpose has yet to be determined.

And the third will incorporate Warren’s love of fitness – a mini-gym.

The business owner says she follows a healthy diet by staying hydrated, eating plenty of fish and vegetables and working out five days a week.

“I try to stay clean because everyone is so sick. I try to stay active, because life is quite difficult,” she said.

Act As a result is open from 12:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. Monday to Saturday.
