Fashioning a Franchise
In 1995, the original Monkee’s store opened for business as a small shoe store, offering designer footwear to the fashion-starved city of Wilmington, North Carolina. Founder DeeDee Shaw affectionately named the business after the phrase her mother called her children — her “bunch of monkeys.” Girly, inviting, and cozy — Shaw designed the boutique store to feel like a well-appointed living room.
“I would love to have one of these,” Brenda Maready, then a loyal friend and customer, recalls saying to Shaw.
