The grand opening of MansaWear, a women’s clothing store at 367 Park Ave., is at 11 a.m. Friday.

Commissioner Delmonize Smith and City Councilmember Elaine Spaull will join business owner Nita Brown at a ceremonial ribbon cutting on Friday.

“MansaWear is a wonderful addition to the Park Avenue shopping scene that will further enhance this area’s reputation as the destination of choice for those looking for eclectic items and original designs,” Smith said in a statement. “I want to thank Ms. Brown for making this investment in the city and helping us grow Rochester’s economy.”

MansaWear was founded in 2004 and combines the fashions of Ghana and the United States.  The women’s clothing and accessories store ships Ghana-made garments to the United States.

The business officially launched in 2010 and owner Brown began doing trunk shows.
