The Shops at 509 originated as separate businesses including Merle Norman and Special Moments.  Alice Simons, became the owner of the Merle Norman Studio in 1995 and opened the Special Moments Gift Shop in 1998, in separate locations.  In 2003, both shops were moved to the current location, 509 N. Adams.  In 2019 Special Moments became Special Moments too and was relocated in the Merle Norman Studio.  Our philosophy is that of Merle Norman with quality products at fair prices. We offer a unique and fun place to shop for cosmetics, personal care, trendy accessories, personal care, baby and more!  It is our goal to give you the personal service that you deserve.
