Hannah Medlock is a 24-year-old entrepreneur who opened her own boutique, Jaded Roots, in Cobbtown on Friday, May 20, 2022. 

Nancy Ramirez Cheley of the Greater Tattnall Chamber of Commerce welcomed friends, family, and supporters to the ribbon-cutting event held last Friday at 12 p.m. Attendees enjoyed hors d'oeuvres and participated in a raffle to win prizes from the store, located at 348 Railroad Street. 

Medlock has lived in Cobbtown her whole life and would love to see the little town grow.  She hopes that her business is successful and can provide cute and affordable clothing and accessories for men, women, and children to the people of Cobbtown and surrounding towns. 

“I have received an abundance of love and support from locals and people who live out-of-town. I had one lady who helped make it all happen, Karen Humphrey,” Medlock said. “Mrs. Karen passed the week before my grand opening. She wasn’t able to see it come together, but she helped me so much, and I am so grateful for that.”

The boutique’s name is very special to Medlock and her family. It is named after her and Zackary Parrish’s two-year-old daughter, Brooklyn Jade.

“My daughter is named after two of her aunts, the late Calli Brooke Medlock and the late Krissi Jade Deloach.  The store has so much meaning behind it, and the name is very sentimental to me and my family,” Medlock said.

Hannah is the daughter of Chris and Jaime Medlock and Ricky and Shonda Sikes. Maci and Mason Cobb, Zoey Sikes, Pat Thigpen, Marley Thigpen, Easton Thigpen, Lynley Thigpen, Brandy Flanders, Brianna Flanders, Carol Medlock, and Debbie Burns are family members and friends who Medlock would like to recognize and thank for their support. 

“My little town has shown up and showed out for my success, and it has meant the world to me. Now, I just pray the Lord watches over my store and guides me in the right direction,” Medlock said.
