Meggie B’s opened March 14, 2009 and has become THE gift shop in Semmes. Semmes was a growing community in need of a unique shop offering customers a broad selection of gifts for any occasion.
Behind the gift shop’s name is a special story. “Meggie” is in honor of Megan Miller, niece of the original owner Tammy Miller. Megan passed in 2006 at the age of 10 from CHARGE Syndrome, an acronym for multiple birth defects. The “B” is in honor of Barbara Madden, Tammy’s mother. Barbara passed also in 2006 at the age of 67 from an auto-immune disorder.
After reaching her goal to establish a gift shop in Semmes, it was time for Tammy to move on to new endeavors. Robin Morse Byrd, a close family friend, purchased Meggie B’s in August 2012. The goal of the store has stayed the same, which is to provide quality customer service, offer unique gifts, and to continue to grow with the community.
