Jan. 26, 2017 – West Bend, WI – After nearly 8 years in business Ooh La La…. accessories in downtown West Bend is closing. Shop owner Kim Riley posted this note:
“We are saddened to say that Ooh La La… accessories will be retiring our West Bend location.
It has been a true honor to be part of the West Bend community and business district. We have been blessed to have such wonderful friends come into our lives over the past 8 years! We hope to continue our friendships at our Menomonee Falls location. It is still our mission to help you with “adorable and affordable” fashion accessories.
Also, I want to assure everyone that gift certificates you may have from West Bend are always welcomed at our Menomonee Falls store. Thank you all for your friendship and love.
Sincerely, Kim Riley
Riley opened her store in mid-September 2009. Below is the original story about that ran in my column Around the Bend by Judy Steffes.
NEW STORE TO OPEN DOWNTOWN MAIN ST… Aug. 15, 2009
A new store called Ooh La La… accessories is opening mid-September at 138 N. Main Street in downtown West Bend. The shop will feature ladies accessories, scarves, purses, sunglasses and jewelry. “We’re going to be a very low key, reasonable, fashion jewelry store that anybody can walk into and you’re not dropping fifty bucks,” said owner Kim Riley.
Ooh la la… accessories is located next to Ruth Anne’s Gourmet Market and will open in the storefront formerly home to West Bend Frame & Art.
