Key Sector: Retail
In Forney Since: 2003

Downtown Forney Anchor

It all started in downtown Forney for Groovy’s! At first they were a children's store that quickly transformed into a fashion destination for women of all ages. Owners and founders Robert and Christi Foster founded Groovy’s in 2003. Today Groovy’s is known for its expertly styled clothing, top of the line customer service and amazing gift lines. They also have a location now in Rockwell, Texas.

Community Connection in Forney

The Forney EDC provided Groovy’s with an opportunity to expand and improve their store front. They were also given the opportunity to purchase their building, which allowed the investment made in capital improvements to the building, to be a worthy financial decision for their small business.

The Forney EDC was an amazing partner when growing our business. We had never gone through a large, in depth construction project prior to relocating and expanding our store and their guidance was a tremendous help.
Robert and Christi Foster, Owners

The Fosters say, “We wouldn’t say that it was a easy process and there wasn’t a few trying times, but they assisted us every step along the way. The opportunity to work with them in revitalizing the downtown area has been exciting and their enthusiasm is infectious.”

With the huge community support of their small business, as the town continues to grow so will Groovy’s. They always strive to be the leader in specialty retail by providing for the needs and wants of their customers. As they evolve, so does Groovy’s.
