Grand Opening Scheduled for August 2018

May 2018 – Monkee’s, an upscale ladies boutique that features designer shoes, clothing, and accessories is scheduled to open its first store in Lynchburg, Virginia, in August of 2018. The store will be located at 4925 Boonsboro Road, in the Boonsboro Shopping Center.

Store owner Fredanel Story Morris hails from North Carolina, where the first Monkee’s store was founded in 1995 and the franchise is headquartered. She has been an enthusiastic Monkee’s shopper for more than two decades. A new resident of Lynchburg, Morris brought with her a love for unique, high quality designer clothing, and a desire to open Lynchburg’s first Monkee’s store.

“Their history, their brand and the quality of items in every store, coupled with amazing corporate support and the ideal space coming available…everything just fell into place,” said Morris.

The Boonsboro Shopping Center is already filled with great specialty shops and Morris says her Monkee’s store will be a perfect fit at the popular shopping destination.

“It will compliment what’s already here but bring in something new. I’m really looking forward to learning about what ladies of Lynchburg want and meeting their needs with great designers and excellent customer service,” said Morris.

Lynchburg will be the fifth Monkee’s in Virginia, with other locations in Fredericksburg and Virginia Beach. A total of 27 Monkee’s boutiques are operated in nine states.

Designed to look like your (well-heeled) girlfriends closet, the boutique’s signature chandeliers, comfy couches and stunning shoe galleries are all staples in a Monkee’s store. However, each location has a personality of its own. For sneak peeks of the new store and updates on the Grand Opening Celebration, please follow @monkeesoflynchburg on Facebook and Instagram.
