About Monkee's

High End Fashion Boutique Bringing the Designers to You

In 1995, the original Monkee’s store opened in Wilmington, North Carolina. Imagine a store beyond your wildest imagination – an upscale, girlie, always in style boutique where the owner desired to give her customers the ultimate shopping experience – and even know them by name! A second store was opened only a short time later in Winston-Salem, North Carolina by Brenda Maready, the co-owner of Monkee’s Franchising, LLC.

At Monkee’s, it’s about making an intimate shopping experience to help a friend walk out feeling beautiful and looking her best.

Our Monkee’s boutiques are independently owned and operated. The Monkee’s brand has cultivated a unique family of small business owners in a supportive and collaborative environment. Interested in owning a Monkee’s Franchise?
