Catherine Sullivan

Monkee’s of Fredericksburg

Why did you want to own your own business?

I guess you could say it is in my blood. My grandfather opened a hardware store in Roanoke, VA when he returned from WW2 and my father became part owner before I was born. At an early age I spent my free time at the store “helping”.

I saw the pride my father and grandfather had in helping people and the joy they got from running their own business. Owning my own business challenges me, which I love! Life is short and should always be lived right on the edge of your comfort zone.

Suzanne Ketchings

Monkee’s of Ridgeland

Why did you want to own a Monkee’s?

My name is Suzanne Ketchings and I am the owner of Monkee’s of Ridgeland! I am a native Mississippian who grew up in North Carolina, where I first began shopping at Monkee’s stores many years ago. Always my go to for every occasion, I love the comfortable, stylish and fun atmosphere Monkee’s stores offer. After moving back to Mississippi and attending college and law school at Ole Miss, I decided to fulfill my dream of owning my own business. Coupled with my love of everything fashion, Monkee’s was a natural fit. I am thrilled to bring the Monkee’s shopping experience to Mississippi and to offer their personalized service to our customers in the Jackson area and beyond!
