Bossier Chamber member spotlights March 2017


The Bossier Chamber of Commerce is partnering with the Bossier Press-Tribune to recognize its current members each month. This month’s Member Spotlights are:

Sloan’s Formals

Bossier-Shreveport is officially in the midst of formal wear season. Between Mardi Gras balls, winter formals, and early proms, formal dresses and gowns are in high demand this time of year.

If you have an upcoming special occasion and need the perfect dress, be sure to visit Sloan’s Formals off Benton Road in Bossier City. The formal wear retailer opened its doors in April 2016 and relocated to its present day location last November. Sloan’s Formals carries brands such as Mon Cheri, Precious Formals, Clarisse, and many more.

In addition to a large selection of dresses and gowns, the shop offers accessories such as shoes, garter purses, and even tux rentals. Owner Patti Maughon grew up around the formal wear business as her parents have owned a formal wear shop in Alabama for over 30 years. Stop by Sloan’s Formals at 811 Benton Road.

Coastal Urgent Care

Coastal Urgent Care opened its doors during the first week of December 2016. Because of a need in the north Bossier area, Coastal Urgent Care strategically positioned itself at 5314 Airline Drive, just north of I-220. This brand new facility is faster and less expensive than the emergency room, and being able to walk right in makes this urgent care option more convenient than a typical doctor visit.

Locations associated with the Coastal Urgent Care team include Houma, Gonzales, Baton Rouge, and Thibodaux.

Coastal Urgent Care accepts most insurance plans, including (but not limited to) Aetna, Blue Cross, Cigna, Humana and United Healthcare. “You shouldn’t have to wait to feel better,” so checkout their  Facebook page at and website for additional information.

Brewer Physical Therapy

Brewer Physical Therapy is on the grow. Not only does Brewer Physical Therapy have a location in Shreveport but the eight-year-old practice recently expanded and opened doors to its second location off Barksdale Blvd in Bossier City! The dynamic duo and owners, Adam and Amanda Brewer, are pleased to provide superb outpatient physical therapy to the Shreveport-Bossier area as both both locations provide physical therapy and trigger point dry needling services.

Brewer Physical Therapy has a reputation that shines as the practice was chosen as “Best Physical Therapy” by Locals Love Us and SB Magazine. Brewer Physical Therapy looks forward to continued growth as future plans include expansion into North Bossier. Checkout the Brewer Physical Therapy Facebook page HERE and their website at

Susan’s Studio of Dance & Fitness

Susan’s Studio of Dance & Fitness is celebrating 25 years of business in Bossier Parish. Owner Susan Meyer fulfilled a childhood dream by opening the Haughton-based dance studio back in 1992. The studio offers dance instruction as well as dance line prep, cheernastics, and gymnastics in a small group atmosphere to encourage a non-competitive, loving atmosphere. At Susan’s Studio of Dance & Fitness everyone has a “place” and is accepted. The studio is also known for providing special needs classes and hopes to expand this program in the near future. In addition to expanding specific programs, Susan’s Studio also has future plans to renovate. Susan’s Studio has a Beauty and the Beast “Be Our Guest” recital theme coming up in May 2017, which will be held at Airline High School. {For a complete list of class descriptions, schedule options, and sign-up, check out the Susan’s Studio of Dance & Fitness website here: & their Facebook HERE.
