    I have a boutique.

    Hi,

    I have a boutique. Is it correct?

    Does it mean he sells clothes, shoes etc? Can I still use "boutique even if he sells only clothes?

    Re: I have a boutique.

    For me, a boutique is an upmarket clothes shop, selling high-quality, high-price clothing - usually women's clothing. However, I am aware that the term is being used for shops which sell other items.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: I have a boutique.

    If it's not selling high-end clothes, I would prefer clothes shop/store to boutique.
