NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. — Southern California specialty retailer Beauty Collection has added to its collection of stores with its first Orange County location in Newport Beach, Calif.
Although Beauty Collection customers have been asking from Day One 15 years ago for the retailer to have a presence in the county, Beauty Collection owner Shawn Tavakoli didn’t want to rush into a subpar location. It took three years of vetting sites before he settled upon the Corona del Mar Plaza shopping center, where Beauty Collection’s store, its fourth overall, is 1,500 square feet.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
