At this time of year when the season is filled with holiday celebrations and family gatherings; sister and brother team Genea and Eric Webb are focused on making sure that everyone is fashionably dressed for their affair of choice.

For more than 20 years the family owned business, Selections by Genea and Eric at 534 Miller Ave. in Clairton has been providing a varied clientele throughout the Mon Valley with what the duo consider an eclectic selection of clothing and accessories.

The store was established in1993 by the duos mother, Hannah who wanted to take her love of all things fashionable to the general public.

“Mom’s first business venture was a beauty salon on North State Street in 1968,” said Eric pointing out that she was the first Black woman back then to do so. In 1980 she purchased the Miller Street property and opened Salon de Elegance. “Clients came from all over the area, Penn Hills, Pittsburgh and Monessen for my Mom’s one of a kind hair styles,” said Genea. “She even did one of Mr. Rodger’s Neighborhood’s receptionist’s hair.”
