The Bashford-Burmister Company stands foremost in general merchandising in Prescott Arizona. This large and flourishing establishment was started in 1864 by L. Bashford, but on a very small scale and became a firm in 1867. In 1870 it became L. Bashford and Company and thus continued until 1886 when L. Bashford withdrew and the firm title was changed to The Bashford-Burmister Company which was incorporated April 1, 1892 with R.H. Burmister as president, F.M. Murphy, vice-president and W.C. Bashford secretary and treasurer. These gentlemen are also the directors.
In 1876 a one story brick building was erected, 125 x 50 added on the present building, making a fine three story brick with a basement. This is the largest store in the Territory. It has arches and partitions on the first floor and the firm carries a large and select stock of goods. This company buys principally from the Eastern market and fifteen courteous and obliging clerks are employed. In connection with the store this firm has five warehouses and a lumber yard. A large stock of lumber is carried and they furnish a great deal of building material for the northern part of the Territory.
Bashford court is still up and running! Store owners opened up unique shops ranging form clothing to fresh oils.

Boutiques Provide A Quaint Enviroment
According to the web the definition which describes a boutique is as follows:
- a small store selling fashionable clothes or accessories.
- a business that serves a sophisticated or specialized clientele.
Best described by Wikipedia: A boutique is a small shopping outlet, especially one that specializes in elite and fashionable items such as clothing and jewelry. The word is French for "shop" "storehouse".
The term entered into everyday English use in the late 1960s when, for a brief period, London was the centre of the fashion trade.Carnaby Street and the Kings Road were the focus of much media attention as home to the most fashionable boutiques of the era. Also referred to as lejolie boutique meaning beautiful sounding relaxed. Boutique is a beautiful version of a shop, and also a relaxed version of shop.
However boutiques have changed with time. While most boutiques are still small and quaint, They now specialize in other items which go beyond clothing.
Surprisingly, there are also mobile boutiques! Clothing on wheels, is what I call it. However one business owner of a mobile boutique who seemed to be driving ahead with the business, had to come to complete stop.
I found the following article which reveals what some boutique owners may have to go through in order to keep their business running smoothly.
The owner of a popular local clothing boutique just learned she may be forced to button up some of her business in order to stay legal. She's part of the new and growing trend of turning box trucks into traveling retail stores. But confusion over permits is unraveling part of her business plan, and she's not alone.
Before Malika Siddiq invested her life savings in a mobile fashion boutique 7 months ago, she says she saved her money and did her homework to make sure everything was by the book. She says she contacted the city to make sure she had the proper documents.
"I just got the licenses they told me I needed," said Siddiq. "My resellers license, my Washington state business license, my City of Seattle license. I'm a legit business owner. I want to follow all the rules. I want to do everything the right way."
The Reason Why Arizona Has The Best Boutiques Is Because They Are Located All Throughout The State For The Most Part

One unique mobile boutique that stood out was the Jesus Loves Me skin care boutique, which carried lip balms and subtle body lotions, the smell is heavenly.
