Krista Leigh (pictured below) is the dreamer behind Cooper Road Collection ~ an exclusively plus size clothing boutique located on Main Street in the up and coming area of Uptown Lexington, NC!
After graduating from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, with her Bachelor's of Science in Entrepreneurship in 2015, Krista quickly discovered that shopping for a plus size body on a budget was easier said than done. Two years later, in July of 2017, in the midst of working a full time job in the finance industry and purchasing her first home with her, now husband, Clayton (Lexington native), Krista created Cooper Road Collection ~ an affordable boutique exclusively for plus size women.
The store opened it's door on September 30th of 2017 and has been serving the plus size women of Lexington and surrounding communities since then along with recently diving into online sales.
After almost 2 years of juggling her full time job and running Cooper Road, Krista was able to "retire" on August 30th of 2019 from her finance job to focus all her efforts on spreading the word about Cooper Road Collection to, hopefully, someday have multiple brick and mortar locations across the country!
